Report to the Ontario Council on Graduate Studies of the Committee on Student Financial Support.
Committee of Presidents of Universities of Ontario, Toronto.
In October 1969 the Ontario Council on Graduate Studies appointed a committee to study the operation of the Ontario Graduate Fellowship Program to date with a view to determining whether any changes should be recommended in its objectives, method of operation, scale and relation to other programs. It was found that the program has been strikingly successful in producing university and college staff for Ontario and Canada and also in providing the means to train in Ontario some of those specialists needed in an increasingly complex society. It is recommended that the competition for the program be modified, specifically by awarding the bulk of the fellowships in a province-wide procedure with the awards portable within Ontario rather than tied to a specific university. For graduate students whose academic ability and promise do not justify scholarship support, a grant/loan scheme coupled with a limited opportunity for employment is recommended. In addition, it is recommended that awards through the program be increased from $750 a term to $800 a term in recognition of the increasing cost of living. (HS)
