You need to meet the following requirements to be eligible to apply for and receive PRSS.
These are the minimum requirements to receive PRSS funding and many faculties and schools impose additional requirements in their PRSS guidelines. It is important that you review the specific guidelines as well as the minimum requirements below.
If you are a doctoral student and meet the eligibility criteria, you may be awarded PRSS a maximum of three times during your candidature (four full-time years).
If you are a masters by research student and meet the eligibility criteria, you may be awarded PRSS once during your candidature (two full-time years).
If you convert from a masters to a doctorate, the number of successful PRSS awards allowed will increase from one to three for the period of your candidature. This will include any award during your masters degree. The 2022 PRSS payment will be counted towards this limit.
