According to NSERC and SSHRC regulations and as outlined in the Award Holder’s Guide, a student holding
an NSERC CGS-D/PGS-D Scholarship or a SSHRC CGS/Doctoral Fellowship is required to complete and
submit an annual progress report in order to renew their multi-year award. The Awarding Council may cancel
the award if the student's progress is not judged satisfactory. This document may be used to continue a
scholarship for a maximum of three academic terms.
Every researcher conducting research involving human subjects has the obligation to be familiar with the Tri-
Council Policy Statement as well as the University of Toronto policies on research. Researchers are
encouraged to take the TCPS Online Tutorial. Graduate students engaged in human subjects research are
responsible for the ethical conduct of the projects, as are their supervisors. It is vital that both parties are aware
of what these responsibilities entail. Further information is available on the SGS website.
A completed Annual Progress Report must be submitted to your graduate unit for the appropriate signatures
and forwarding to the Graduate Awards Office at the School of Graduate Studies. A copy of the report should
be kept by the Graduate Unit in the student’s academic file.
To ensure secure and timely delivery of this report, Graduate Units are asked to scan and save this
document to their unit’s folder on the SGS-drive. Please do not email, fax or mail this document.
