The GPS provides information on these competitions on its site, in the academic units, and on campus bulletin boards. It also oversees the selection process of applications that will be provided by each of the agencies. 

The new governmental rules regarding paid parental leave oblige students claiming this privilege to submit to preliminary checks prior to the request. To do so, you have to fill the form prepared by the GPS. 

With respect to provincial agency competitions (FQRNT and FQRSC), the GPS provides information, receives required documents from the different academic units, and sends them to the relevant agency. For the FRSQ, the responsibility of the FESP is limited to providing information.

Deadlines: See the Calendar.

Foundation Scholarships

Some foundations require from Université de Montréal a pre-selection of applications before proceeding with the final selection of candidates.
