We hope that our alumni, as soon as they are in a position to do so, will consider supporting our graduate students by making a donation to Brock internal graduate awards and scholarships or initiate a scholarship award.
With your help, the Faculty of Graduate Studies can increase the number of awards and scholarships to be given out each year. Our hope is to provide as many graduate students as possible with financial assistance that allows them to devote all of their energies and enthusiasm to their studies and research projects.
Examples of opportunities to support graduate students:
The following external scholarships provide matching funds.
Two to one match – for every dollar that you give, the province will contribute two dollars
Ontario Graduate Scholarships (OGS):
This program is designed to encourage excellence at the master’s and doctoral levels. An OGS is awarded for one academic year; the student receives $10,000 for two consecutive terms or $15,000 for three consecutive terms. The province contributes two-thirds while, each year, generous donations assist the University in raising its required contribution.
Ontario Graduate Scholarship in Science and Technology (OGSST):
The maximum value of this award is $15,000 or $5,000 per team. The province awards two –thirds (to a maximum of $10,000 annually or $3,333 per term) to an individual student. The University awards the remaining one-third (to a maximum of $5,000 annually or $2,667 per term) through private-sector fundraising.
One to one match – your contribution will be equally matched.
Matching Corporate Programs:
As a measure of good corporate citizenship, many companies have programs where they match employee gifts to registered charities. Please check with your company to see if such an opportunity is available.
You can help us build our awards by donating to one of the many internal awards that are presented each year to graduate students at Brock University or, you may be interested in creating a new award that matches your interests. See current list of internal donor scholarships and awards.
