Computing Science Graduate Fellowship

Terms of Reference

  1. 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).
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Awards are made by the Senate Graduate Awards Adjudication Committee on the recommendation of the School of Computing Science Graduate Committee.
