FOR ALL APPLICANTS APPLYING FOR GWMSC UPPER-YEAR AWARDS:
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR ADULT LEARNERS
Adult learners are asked to submit an additional page, which should include a brief biographical sketch, a more extensive employment history, and a paragraph about why they have decided to pursue college studies.
NOMINATION PROCESS & SELECTION PROCESS
Most participating colleges in Canada can nominate up to three students who are currently enrolled in an eligible program (2005-06 academic year). To recognize regional differences in college structure, public CEGEPs in Quebec can nominate up to two students and province-wide college systems in Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick can nominate up to six students.
Students must first submit their application directly to their designated institutional representative. Based on the submissions received, the institution will determine which applicants are to be nominated. The representative will then complete Page 9 of each nominated application and forward it directly to the GWMSC program.
For information on institutional representatives, click here.
After receiving the applications, GWMSC selection committees will assess the applications and choose candidates to attend regional interviews. Applicants asked to attend interviews will be notified at least two weeks before regional interviews.
