You may interrupt your award only for the reasons of maternity, child-rearing, illness, or health related family responsibilities. Requests for interruptions must be approved by both your academic unit and Graduate Studies, and may require additional documentation. Contact the Faculty of Graduate Studies Scholarship Officer as soon as possible before commencing your leave of absence.
  3. Renewal of graduate awards is not automatic. Consideration for subsequent awards is at the discretion of the academic unit offering the award and is contingent upon the maintenance of a cumulative grade point average of at least 7.00.
  4. Graduate awards are not portable from one department to another.
