The NSERC Postgraduate Scholarships (PGS) Program provides financial support to high-calibre students who are engaged in master's or doctoral programs in the natural sciences or engineering. This support allows these students to fully concentrate on their studies and to seek out the best research mentors in their chosen fields. NSERC encourages qualified Aboriginal students who are interested in the program to apply.
Normally, up to three A.G. Hatcher Memorial Scholarships are awarded annually commencing in the Fall Semester. The awards are to be made solely on the basis of high academic merit. Typically a minimum of a first class degree is required. One scholarship shall be awarded to an applicant who graduated with an undergraduate degree from Memorial University, one to an applicant who graduated with an undergraduate degree from a Canadian university, and one to an applicant who graduated with an undergraduate degree from a foreign university. The value of the scholarship is $15,000, and it may be held for one year only. Recipients holding a major external award of $15,000 or greater will retain $3,000 of the A. G.
