Computing Science Graduate Fellowship
Terms of Reference
- The School of Computing Science Graduate Fellowship (CSGF) is a one-semester award valued at a minimum $6,000 for a Master's thesis and Ph.D. students (effective September 2015).
- To be eligible to hold a CSGF, a student must be registered as a full-time, regular (not "on-leave" or part-time") student and must normally have a minimum 3.0 grade point average. The CSGF is awarded on criteria of academic merit, including grades and research ability. Demonstrated research ability may outweigh the grade point average criterion.
- Recipients of a CSGF may accept scholarship support from other sources, but the total value of the support (external and internal scholarship and research assistantship) may not exceed $42,000 per year. In any given semester, a student may not hold more than one award from the following group of internal awards — CSGF, SFU Graduate Fellowship, Faculty of Applied Sciences Dean’s Fund Graduate Fellowship (FAS-GF), and President’s Ph.D. Research Scholarship.
- Students will normally be eligible to receive CSGF support only during the first three (3) semesters of a Master's thesis program and during the first six (6) semesters of a Ph.D. program. For a student transferred from a Master's program to a Ph.D. program, the semester of transfer will be regarded as the first semester in his/her Ph.D. program in the above calculation.
- Awards are made by the Senate Graduate Awards Adjudication Committee on the recommendation of the School of Computing Science Graduate Committee.
