Overview

The Queen Elizabeth II Graduate Scholarship in Science and Technology (QEII-GSST) program is designed to encourage excellence in graduate studies at the master and doctoral levels.

A QEII-GSST is awarded for one academic year, which may consist of one to three consecutive terms.  The current value of the QEII-GSST is $5,000 per term.  Thus, winners may receive a total of $10,000 for two consecutive terms or a total of $15,000 for three consecutive terms.  It is most common for a student to receive $15,000 for three consecutive terms (one academic year). Two-year awards are not granted.
