August 8, 2011 – The Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships were created to attract world-class doctoral students and to brand Canada as a global centre of excellence in research and higher learning. They are worth $50,000 per year for three years and are available to both Canadian and international PhD students studying at Canadian universities. Regarding the 2012-2013 competition, the university deadline for submitting nominations to granting agencies is November 9, 2011. Prior to this, however, students must be nominated by a Canadian university with a Vanier program allocation.
