Selection Process

There is one application and selection process for the CGS D and the PGS D. The top-ranked applicants will be offered a CGS D, and the next tier of meritorious applicants will be offered a PGS D.

The selection committees recommend scholarships for the applications they consider to be most meritorious, according to the selection criteria described in the CGS D program description and within the limit of available awards

If you are offered a CGS D, but decide to take your award to an eligible foreign institution and are eligible to do so, you must decline the CGS D and accept a PGS D award in its place.

Selection Criteria

The evaluation of CGS D applications, whether by institutions or the agencies, is based on the following criteria:

  • Research ability and potential
  • Relevant experience and achievements obtained within and beyond academia

Application Deadline

If you are applying through an institution, you must submit your application by the deadline set by the institution, which may be well in advance of the agency deadline.

The institution will review and rank all applications received and submit the recommended applications to the agencies by November 21. If the deadline falls on a weekend, applications can be submitted the following business day before 8:00 p.m. (ET).
