Scholarships and Fellowships
There are a number of awards that students can compete for, both prior to entering the graduate program and during their graduate studies. Citizens and other Permanent Residents of Canada are eligible to apply for Postgraduate Scholarships awarded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC). Students from outside Canada may be able to apply for awards for graduate study in Canada depending on their home country. For example, students from Commonwealth countries can apply for Commonwealth Scholarships.
The Provost's Prize of Distinction (PPD) top-up will be awarded to outstanding domestic students (Canadian and permanent residents) who are initiating their graduate program at SFU and have received a major national scholarship from one of the tri-councils (CIHR, NSERC, or SSHRC). Vanier recipients will receive the award with no cash value. Normally, the PPD award is not available to students in specialty programs. Together with departmental support, this amounts to an annual $10,000 top-up for the duration of the scholarship while enrolled as full-time graduate student at SFU Department of Mathematics.
Applicants with other external scholarships or with support from their home country are usually eligible for a top-up from SFU, via either a Special Graduate Entrance Scholarship or a Provost International Fellowship.
SFU has a very limited number of Major Entrance Scholarships for exceptional students, valued at approximately $10,000 - $18,000 per year. Duration of award outlined in Terms of Reference for each scholarship. If you wish to be nominated for an entrance scholarship, you are strongly encouraged to submit your application for admission by January 15, 2015. Failure to submit your application for admission by this deadline will decrease your chances for consideration in the annual Entrance Scholarship Competition to be held in February 2015.
