USask Supports Ukraine

News about these shocking events and their potential implications for world peace is troubling for all of us, and particularly for our many Ukrainian and Russian university members.

CGPS is committed to expeditious facilitation of applications to programs, visiting research students or as postdoctoral scholars on behalf of our faculty who are considering hosting a displaced research trainee. For application support, please contact CGPS by emailing Marc.Usunier@usask.ca regarding graduate students and Chelsea.smith@usask.ca regarding postdoctoral fellows. 

A statement from the presidents of Canada’s federal research granting agencies to support Ukrainian research trainees - Science.gc.ca. This temporary fund will allow all active and eligible grant-holders across the three agencies, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) to apply for a supplement that will provide one-year relief and assistance to trainees (i.e., individuals eligible for master’s, doctoral or postdoctoral support) whose research in Ukraine has been interrupted. Further details of the fund will be released in the coming weeks on the respective agency's websites.

Support for Iranian Applicants

Students from Iran comprise an important part of our current and future graduate student community. Given the current situation in Iran we are working hard to support Iranian applicants. Current supports available include:

  • If a supervisor/program is interested in considering an individual’s formal application and payment of the application fee is a barrier for the applicant, we can provide an application fee waiver.
  • If an Iranian applicant is struggling to access English language proficiency testing, we can provide a Duolingo waiver code.
  • If an Iranian applicant’s referees are unable to submit reference letters online, we can work with the program to establish an alternative.
  • If an Iranian applicant is admitted and is having difficulties in getting their current or former institutions to send official documents to CGPS, we can discuss alternative options with the admitting program.
Programs working with any Iranian applicants who are having difficulties with aspects of the application process are encouraged to reach out to their CGPS Program Advisor to discuss the ways in which we can support.
