The Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS) program encourages excellence in graduate studies at the master’s and doctoral levels. It is a merit-based scholarship. Awards are available to students in all disciplines of academic study. An Ontario Graduate Scholarship is awarded for one academic year, which may consist of two or three consecutive terms. The OGS program is jointly funded by the Province of Ontario and the postsecondary institution. The Province of Ontario contributes two-thirds of the value of the award and the university provides one-third. For 2012-2013, the Province of Ontario will provide about $30 million towards these scholarships and eligible institutions will provide $15 million.
You must be taking an eligible program. An eligible program is defined as a full-time program of study of two or three terms at an eligible institution leading to a graduate degree.
