INSTRUCTIONS FOR APPLYING FOR THE DOCTORAL COMPLETION AWARD
The DCA is available for doctoral students in the first year beyond the funded cohort. Both domestic and international students are eligible to apply and should submit their application to the Graduate Administrator by the appropriate deadline (as announced on the student gradlist). The value of the award is determined by available funds each year.
In order to apply for the DCA you must:
Note: Phd U students applying a second time must submit ONE NEW chapter with their second application.
In order to take up the award in the fall you must have completed two chapters (or the equivalent) of the dissertation or, for PhDU students applying for the first time, one chapter (or the equivalent). These chapters (single spaced and double sided) are to be submitted to the Graduate Administrator by 1 August (or the next business day if 1 August falls on a weekend or a statutory holiday). Note this is a hard deadline so your award payment can be processed in timely manner for the September awards cheque run. NEW THIS YEAR: Chapters are to be submitted digitally via email to BOTH the DGS email@example.com AND to the Graduate Administrator firstname.lastname@example.org .
NOTE: Students who defend and submit their final dissertation to SGS T-Space by 15th September for fall graduation or 15th January (approx. dates) for spring graduation are ineligible to receive the fall/winter portion of the DCA instalment. Once SGS receives the final dissertation, the student is FINCAed (financially cancelled) and is no longer a registered student.
