Acknowledge your Vanier CGS
The Vanier CGS program encourages you to promote your accomplishment in becoming a Vanier Scholar. Please remember to mention that you are a Vanier scholar in any documentation related to your scholarly activities (e.g., in the promotion of speaking engagements, at conferences or workshops, in biographical notes, in materials for the media, etc.).
The title of each scholar must include the term "Vanier Scholar." You may use this title for the duration of your Vanier CGS.
You may also use the Vanier CGS logo to visually acknowledge the Vanier CGS program’s contribution to your projects.
The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) are committed to demonstrating results to Canadians for the funds invested through the Vanier CGS program. Therefore, processes for monitoring progress and appropriate use of funds, as well as for performance measurement and program evaluation are in place.
Vanier Scholars will be expected to:
- contribute to the review and evaluation of the program and associated policies and processes by participating in evaluation studies, surveys, workshops and audits.
- provide data or reports as required for the purpose of collecting information to assess progress and results.
