The International Doctoral Tuition Scholarship replaces the former International Graduate Tuition Scholarship. It is intended to cover the difference between domestic and international tuition (currently $11k per year). There is no cap on the number of these scholarships.
The IDTS is available to all incoming and current international PhD students who meet the criteria outlined below, starting in F18.
The award is valued at $11k per yera for up to 4 years.
Eligibility: The scholarship will be awarded to new international full-time doctoral (PhD and DVSc) students with a minimum A-/80% entrance average (Guelph equivalent) for up to four years (12 semesters). New international full-time doctoral students without a minimum A-/80% entrance average will become eligible for the scholarship once they achieve PhD candidacy for the balance of the four-year period of eligibility (as determined from the beginning of the doctoral program). The new scholarship will be available to existing international full-time doctoral students who were accepted with a minimum A-/80% entrance average or who have achieved PhD candidacy for the balance of the four-year period of eligibility (as determined from the beginning of the doctoral program).
Tenure of Awards: Recipients must remain enrolled as a full-time student and maintain satisfactory progress for the duration of the scholarship in order to maintain funding.
Tenability with other awards: The IDTS is not tenable with existing awards for which international students are eligible, such as the IGTS (i.e., current holders), Trillium, Vanier and Arrell, nor scholarships provided by home governments.
Application Procedure: N/A. Full details on how the scholarship will be administered will be provided by the Office of Graduate Studies at a later date.
