Two types of awards are available. Please be advised that an applicant can only apply to one competition in the same year:

Please note that if successful, an applicant cannot change the proposed location or institution paid from a Canadian institution (CGSD application) to a foreign institution (DFSA application) since the purpose of these competitions are different.
