Eligibility criteria:


  • You must not have exceeded 2 years for a M.Sc. and 4 years for a Ph.D. when the scholarship is awarded (or 3 years for a M.Sc. and 5 years for a Ph.D. if you have suffered delays due to the covid-19 pandemic or other personal reasons – see page 3 of the form).
  • You must not hold a major scholarship (NSERC, SSHRC, FRQSC, FRQNT, Vanier) at the time of the 2024 Geotop scholarship competition results. 
  • You must be supervised by two or more Geotop regular researchers.
  • You must have attended, and gave a talk or presented a poster at, the Geotop Student Meeting, which was held on March 22-24, 2023. 


  • You must have an average cumulative GPA of at least 3.2/4.3 or the equivalent.
  • You can, but do not need to be co-supervised by two or more Geotop regular researchers (one is enough).

Given applicants with equal qualifications, priority will be given to students who have no other source of funding.
