A complete nomination consists of:
The “application/ nomination instructions” section details and summarizes the steps to be followed by candidates for completing and submitting their nominations. The “information for nominating institutions instructions” section details and summarizes the steps to be followed by the Canadian institution putting forward nominations, including the nomination letter. Selection committee members should read this information carefully and refer to it when reviewing the nominations assigned to them.
Should you have difficulties assessing international transcripts, advise the Secretariat staff immediately.
Candidates must be nominated by a Canadian institution with a quota* to host Vanier scholars. Candidates should only seek a nomination from the institution at which they want to study.
*The term “quota” refers to the maximum number of nominations an institution can forward to the national competition.
The Government of Canada launched the Vanier CGS program in 2008 to strengthen Canada’s ability to attract and retain world-class doctoral students and establish Canada as a global centre of excellence in research and higher learning. Vanier Scholars demonstrate leadership skills and a high standard of scholarly achievement in graduate studies in the social sciences and humanities, natural sciences and/or engineering, and health.
Students wishing to apply for a Vanier CGS must do so through the Canadian institution to which they are applying for doctoral studies. Based on their quotas, Canadian institutions will forward a limited number of nominations to the Vanier CGS program.
Up to 166 Vanier Scholars are awarded each year and are divided among the three federal granting agencies, who each offer 55 awards annually. The additional award is rotated annually between NSERC and CIHR.
The Vanier-Banting Secretariat, which is housed within CIHR, is responsible for the day-to-day administration of the program.
Nominations are evaluated and selected based on the following three criteria, weighted equally:
When evaluating nominations, both the prestige of the Vanier CGS and the stage and nature of the candidate’s academic career should be considered.
The Tri-Agencies are actively engaged in promoting equity and diversity, as well as in decreasing unconscious bias in their review processes. To this end, the Secretariat has curated a list of resources for selection committee members regarding equity, diversity and inclusion consideration.
Opt-out at any time. No strings attached.
