Since 1975, Ontario, in partnership with Ontario’s publicly-assisted universities, has encouraged excellence in graduate studies at the master’s and doctoral levels through the awarding of Ontario Graduate Scholarships (OGS). OGS awards are merit-based scholarships available to students in all disciplines of academic study. The OGS program is jointly funded by the Province of Ontario and Ontario universities.

Carleton University Students
Due to the situation at Carleton University, students who have not yet ordered or uploaded their Carleton transcripts in the portal will have to get a letter from the Registrar's Office at Carleton University which explains the situation and upload this letter with your other transcripts.  Once Carleton University can issue transcripts, you will have to bring an official transcript to the Graduate Office of the faculty you selected in your OGS application.
