How to Apply for Dalhousie University Scholarships
Please follow the following steps to apply for Dalhousie University Scholarships.
(1) Log into the FGS Scholarship Management Platform. If you already have a Dalhousie NetID, please select “Use Dalhousie NetID” to log in. If not, please enter an email address and create a password. It is only necessary to create one account, even if you intend to apply for multiple opportunities.
(2) Create a new scholarship application or edit an existing one by selecting from the “My applications” list on your home page. Only one application per competition will be accepted by each applicant, so please do not submit multiple Harmonized Scholarship applications.
(3) Master’s applicants who have applied for the Tri-Agency CGS-M competition may choose to opt-in to use their CGS-M application within the Harmonized Scholarship Process. To do so, please select “Master’s Level – CGS-M Opt-In” as the submission category and proceed through the application. The Faculty of Graduate Studies will link your CGS-M application to your opt-in form, including reference letters and transcripts submitted for the Tri-Agency CGSM competition. The deadline to Opt-in is December 1st (coinciding with the CGS-M application deadline set by Tri-Agency). If you do not opt-in with your CGS-M application, you must complete a full Harmonized Scholarship Application to be considered for other awards.
(4) All applicants are encouraged to complete the self-identification questionnaire found in the Online Scholarship Platform. This allows administrators to ensure applicants are sorted into the review process for award opportunities with specific eligibility criteria. Information provided in this questionnaire is not visible to reviewers and will remain strictly confidential.
(5) Click “Next” at the bottom of each page to move through the application. Clicking “Save” will allow the applicant to close the application and return to it later to edit or update it.
(6) Official transcripts must be obtained and uploaded by the applicant directly in the scholarship portal as per the instructions found in the application. FGS will not provide copies of transcripts from admission applications. Transcripts from multiple institutions must be combined into a single PDF before uploading. Unofficial grade reports for current Dalhousie students may be used in lieu of official transcripts for the harmonized scholarship process.
(7) All reference letters must be submitted in the portal by the January 16, 2025, deadline. The application portal will close to applicants and referees after this date and incomplete applications will not be forwarded for review. Reference letters will not be accepted by email or in hard copy. It is highly recommended that applicants advise their referees of a deadline a few days to one-week prior to January 14 in case of unforeseen emergencies or technical issues. Applicants will receive an email notification from the portal and a “received” notation will appear in red by each referee’s name once their reference has been completed.
Application closes in November 2024
