University of Manitoba Graduate Fellowship (UMGF) intends to support meritorious Masters and Doctoral students of the university. Annually, the university’s Faculty of Graduate Studies provides around CAD 2 million in the University of Manitoba Graduate Fellowship program. The fellowship is applicable to all students at the University of Manitoba.
The maximum UMGF support for any fellowship recipient is five years (60 months). Meaning, the student who received the University of Manitoba Graduate Fellowship for two years in their Master’s Coursework will only be eligible for three years of UMGF funding at the doctoral level. This gives them an excellent opportunity to financially support themselves while studying in Canada.
