The Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS) Program provides funding to students in graduate studies at the master’s and doctoral levels. It’s a merit-based scholarship, with awards available to graduate students attending participating schools in Ontario in all disciplines of academic study. The OGS program is jointly funded by the Province of Ontario and the university awarding the scholarship. Ontario contributes two-thirds of the value of the award and the university provides one-third.
OGS awards are based on the number of terms of your consecutive studies within an academic year:
$10,000 for 2 consecutive study terms
$15,000 for 3 consecutive study terms
