The GSA executive was recently informed by the Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs (FGPA) that there will be changes to internal funding for Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS) recipients for 2012-2013 onward. Students who have already been informed that they will receive an OGS for the 2012-2013 academic year will now see up to $5000 of their internal departmental/graduate scholarship used to make up the $5000 university contribution to the total $15000 OGS award.

We are in the process of delivering the petition to senior administration that has been signed by over 200 people.
