The Indigenous Graduate Scholarships were established to encourage Indigenous (First Nations, Inuit, Métis) students to pursue graduate studies in any discipline. Students apply by February 1st by submitting a one page cover letter that includes the applicant’s full name, student ID # (if applicable), email address (if not a U of Guelph student yet), proposed/current graduate program, proposed/current department and provides a declaration of Indigenous identity or affiliation, a Resume/CV and 2 letters of support from academic and/or community-based referees to the Awards Officers in the Office of Graduate Studies at grschol@uoguelph.ca. Students must maintain satisfactory progress for the duration of the scholarship.

Students entering or registered in any program who self-identify as Indigenous (First Nations, Inuit, Métis) with at least a first-class (A-) average in the most recently completed two years of academic study. In-course students beyond semester level 3 as of the scholarship application deadline are ineligible to apply.
