Do I need to have been accepted into the program of my choice before applying for the scholarship?

  • No, you may apply prior to acceptance, as long as you submit an acknowledgment of application (see question below).
    • Should there be any change in your admission status during the application period, it is of utmost importance that you inform us.
  • For PhD candidates: it is not required to be accepted to the program at the moment of submitting your scholarship application. However, it is essential to provide us with supporting documents from a professor (email exchanges, formal letter, etc) expressing their interest in supervising your research work/dissertation.
