In Canada, the University of Manitoba Graduate Fellowship (UMGF) will accept applications starting in 2024. The University awards more than $2 million in graduate fellowships to full-time master’s and PhD students each year in order to recognize and encourage academic excellence.
Master’s and doctoral applicants with high intellectual capacity and academic success are eligible for the scholarships. Students must be referred to the FGS (Faculty of Graduate Studies) by their department or unit in order to apply for a UMGF. Due to the lack of a research/thesis component, the UMGF does not apply to the Master of Business Administration (MBA), Master of Finance (MFin), or Master of Supply Chain Management (MSCM) degrees.
In Manitoba, Canada, there is a public research institution called the institution of Manitoba (UM). It was established in 1877 and was the first university in Western Canada.
In terms of overall student enrolment and campus space, the University of Manitoba is the biggest university in Manitoba and ranked 17th in Canada. With several campuses located throughout the city, its main campus is located in the southern Winnipeg district of Fort Garry. The University of Manitoba has three more significant campuses in addition to its primary location in Fort Garry: the Bannatyne site, the James W. Burns Executive Education Centre, and the William Norrie Center. The organization also is in charge of the Saint Boniface neighborhood’s French-language affiliate, Université de Saint-Boniface.

- Have a minimum entrance GPA of 3.0. Check with your department to see if they have a higher GPA requirement.
