The Scholarship will be disbursed in the fifth year of candidature. It will pay for tuition fees for the 5th year, and the balance will be disbursed in two equal lump sums in August and January of that academic year.

1. Recommendation letter from supervisor;

2. Research work, including at least one completed thesis chapter;

3. Present a chapter from their thesis in a Graduate Research Seminar, Department Seminar or Reading Group during their fourth year of studies. At least one member of the SSC must attend their presentation.
