Due to the ongoing global pandemic, the Government of Canada has cautioned against non-essential travel until further notice. In light of this, the GSS will not be awarding students with Professional Development Grants for travel to conferences or for field research.
However, as many conferences are moving online, the GSS is still awarding students with Professional development grants of up to $499 for conference fees and registration costs. Students are awarded on a case by case basis
The GSS is proud to provide a source of funding to graduate students presenting at conferences or engaging in field research. Graduate students taking part in these professional development activities may apply for a grant of $499. Grants are distributed by lottery to top-scoring applications coded according to an objective system established by the GSS Grants Allocation Committee.
