The Queen Elizabeth II Graduate Scholarships in Science and Technology (QEII-GSST) program is in addition to and harmonized with the OGS program. QEII-GSST awards are merit-based scholarships available to domestic students in graduate studies undertaking research in science and technology fields.
The Province of Ontario and Ontario universities jointly fund the OGS and QEII-GSST programs. The Province of Ontario contributes two-thirds of the value of every award, and the university provides one-third through private donations to Trent.
To be able to be considered for an OGS/QEII-GSST at Trent, an applicant must:
- Be a current graduate student or have applied for a Trent University graduate program.
- Be a Canadian citizen, a Permanent Resident, or a Protected Person [under subsection 95 (2) of the Immigration and Refugee Protections Act (Canada)] as of the OGS/QEII application deadline.
- If an OGS applicant is an international student they must hold a valid study permit as of the OGS award start date so that they can be considered for OGS awards that the MTCU has allowed Trent University to provide to international students. Trent has two (2) OGS awards allocated for international students.
- If an OGS applicant is Indigenous to Canada they may be considered for OGS awards that institutions are encouraged to allocate to qualified Indigenous graduate students. For the purposes of the scholarship MTCU has outlined that an Indigenous person is a person who self-identifies as First Nations (Status/Non-Status), Métis, or Inuit.
Note: The Value and Duration is $15,000 for one year ($5,000 per term for a maximum of 3 consecutive terms)
