Prospective graduate students are considered for financial support at the time their application is considered.

In order to be considered for the first round of funding (financial support), all documents must be received by 1st March of each year.

NSERC and OGS Scholars, and students who do not require financial assistance can be admitted in any of the three terms: Fall, Winter or Spring, provided that the student meets the registration deadlines.


A limited number of internal scholarships are available to graduate students registered at Carleton University.

NSERC and OGS Scholarships

Current and prospective graduate students are encouraged to apply for Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) scholarships and Ontario Graduate Scholarships (OGS), which are awarded annually to outstanding students by the federal and provincial governments. Competitive supplemental awards are offered by the Department to NSERC and OGS award holders.
