Program Details

The scholarships are as follows:

• Up to three (3) scholarships for full-time student support: $10,000 for the first year of study, non-renewable.


• Scholarships for part-time student support: $5,000 for the first year, renewable for one more year will also be considered.

Awards will be granted to successful applicants (award holders), not to the host program/institution. Therefore, scholarships may be portable within or between programs, as long as recipients continue to meet the award eligibility requirements. Applicants are not restricted from holding scholarships provided by other sources.

Each scholarship will be paid in two equal instalments, one at the end of the fall semester (upon proof of enrolment), and one at the end of the winter semester, subject to the award holder remaining in good standing. If an award holder chooses to defer enrolment in the proposed graduate program to a later date, the recipient must notify the CIA immediately. Note that the approval of the deferral of scholarship funds by the Institute is not guaranteed.
