Applications and nominations for the private award competition will be handled through the new Graduate Award online system (GA3). Log into to access GA3.

These are awards for entering graduate students. Please visit the Private Awards for Current Students page for the list of other non-entrance awards for which you may qualify.

The deadline to submit applications is  June 1 for private awards in the Fall 2018 term.  The list of available awards can be found here. Students cannot apply for an award that is designated by nomination only. Check the terms of reference carefully for special instructions.  (See Private Awards page for details on application and nomination process.)
