Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship

Recommended Posts

I had a question for previous awardees of the Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship and those who have previously tried to apply for this award.

I was told that the scholarship is more likely to be won by those in their upper years and to not apply until I was more senior. I am starting my PhD next fall.

Is this because more senior students have more things to show for in their application / CV, or does the scholarship just favour those who are more senior?

Has anyone tried applying as a 1st year student and been successful?

Thank you.

I know at least one person who got it in their first year of their graduate program. My advice is to apply in every year that you are eligible, it will make later years easier and you might get good feedback to strengthen your application next time around.
