Graduate Studies Matching Program (GSMP) Awards
The Graduate Studies Matching Program (GSMP) is a scholarship and awards fundraising program, initiated by the York University Foundation’s YorkU50 fundraising campaign to raise money for graduate student funding. One goal of the GSMP is to attract top applicants to our graduate programs. Most awards will be for specific programs; others, such as the one listed below, possess broad eligibility criteria allowing many programs to take advantage of submitting their strongest prospective student for consideration.
