The objective of the Canada Graduate Scholarships-Master’s (CGS M) Program is to help develop research skills and assist in the training of highly qualified personnel by supporting students who demonstrate a high standard of achievement in undergraduate and early graduate studies.
NSERC aims to make Canada a country of discoverers and innovators for the benefit of all Canadians. The agency supports students in their advanced studies, promotes and supports discovery research, and fosters innovation by encouraging Canadian organizations to participate and invest in postsecondary research projects. NSERC researchers are on the vanguard of science, building on Canada's long tradition of scientific excellence.
We are the focal point for discovery and innovation in natural sciences and engineering for Canada.
We back bold, high-impact ideas. Supported by a robust system of quality assurance, we give researchers the freedom to aim high and explore the frontiers of science and engineering to produce world-firsts in knowledge.
We invest in the future. We invest in people. We provide students at all levels the chance to gain valuable hands-on research experience as they build the foundation for science-based careers.
We connect communities. We establish relationships between sectors and across borders, we build consensus, and we deliver informed opinion that responds to economic and societal needs.
