In light of the exceptional challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the School of Graduate Studies is pleased to announce the Top Concordian Graduate Entrance Scholarship exclusively for Concordia undergraduate students.

Offering one-time awards of $10,000, the scholarship recognizes exceptional achievement and encourages Concordia’s best students to continue their academic journey in one of our thesis-based research programs.

The Scholarships will be awarded during the first year of the recipient’s program.

To be eligible, students must:

  • be a Concordia undergraduate in their last year of studies in a bachelor’s program
  • have a CGPA of at least 3.7
  • be applying for a thesis-based research program at Concordia
  • be a new student who has either not yet applied or has not yet confirmed their acceptance offers.

“Fostering Concordia’s talented students at every level is a core commitment,” says Cynthia Raso, Manager, Graduate Awards & Postdoctoral Students at the School of Graduate Studies. “We hope this Scholarship inspires our undergraduates to pursue their passions at the graduate level.”

Our entrance awards help us attract and foster the talented students who will shape our future for the better.”
