How to Apply for Dalhousie University Scholarships

To apply for Dalhousie University Scholarships, please follow the instructions below.

1. Proceed to the FGS Scholarship Management Platform and create an account. Please select “Use Dalhousie NetID” to log in if you already have a Dalhousie NetID. If you don’t have an email address, please do so and establish a password. Even if you plan to apply for many positions, you only need to register one account.

2. From the “My applications” section on your home page, create a new scholarship application or amend an existing one. Each applicant will be allowed to submit just one application per competition, so please do not submit multiple Harmonized Scholarship applications.

3. Master’s applicants who applied for the Tri-Agency CGS-M competition may choose to use their CGS-M application as part of the Harmonized Scholarship Process. Please proceed through the application by selecting “Master’s Level – CGS-M Opt-In” as the submission category. Your CGS-M application, including reference letters and transcripts submitted for the Tri-Agency CGSM competition, will be linked to your opt-in form by the Faculty of Graduate Studies. The opt-in date is December 1st (coinciding with the CGS-M application deadline set by Tri-Agency). You must complete a full Harmonized Scholarship Application to be considered for other awards if you do not opt-in with your CGS-M application.

4. The self-identification questionnaire contained in the Online Scholarship Platform is recommended for all applicants. This permits administrators to verify that candidates with specified eligibility criteria are sorted into the evaluation process for award opportunities. Reviewers will not be able to see the information you provide in this questionnaire, and it will be kept strictly confidential.

5. To progress through the application, click “Next” at the bottom of each page. The applicant can close the application and return to it later to change or update it by clicking “Save.”

6. Official transcripts must be collected and uploaded directly into the scholarship portal by the candidate, following the requirements in the application. Transcripts from admission applications will not be provided by FGS. Before uploading, all transcripts from different institutions must be consolidated into a single PDF. For the harmonized scholarship procedure, unofficial grade reports for current Dalhousie students may be utilized instead of official transcripts.

7. By the deadline of January 15, all reference letters must be filed via the site (or February 15 in the case of non-thesis applicants). After this date, the application portal will be closed to applicants and references, and incomplete applications will not be reviewed. Email or physical copy reference letters will not be accepted. In case of unanticipated circumstances or technological issues, applicants should notify their references of a deadline a few days to one week prior to January 14. Applicants will receive an email notification via the site, and once each referee’s reference has been completed, a “received” indication will display in red next to their name. Prior to the deadline, please check the status of references on a regular basis.

8. To finish and submit the application, agree to the terms and conditions and click “Save and Finalize .”

Note: You have until January 15 to withdraw your application to make adjustments, such as updating your transcripts with fall grades or making edits based on comments from your department. If you withdraw your application, you must resubmit it by the deadline of January 15th to be considered.
