Each institution has its own selection procedures, so it is crucial to contact your financial aid office to find out the specific steps.

If you have not applied for a Master’s, Doctorate, Postdoctorate, or short-term research program at a Quebec university, it is useless to apply. Start by applying for admission to a study program in Canada before applying for this scholarship.

When your Canadian educational institution pre-selects you, they will invite you to submit a scholarship application to the Fonds de recherche du Québec (FRQ). The FRQ then evaluates your application and selects the recipients. The announcement of the selection results is usually made in February or March of the year following the call for applications.
