No, programs can nominate eligible candidates who are eligible for admission or have received an offer of admission. Candidates cannot apply directly for a Vector Scholarship in Artificial Intelligence. However, to support the nomination, candidates must supply a short statement, a 1 to 2 page CV, and solicit two referee reports to be sent directly to the program(s) in which the candidate has applied. Prospective students may alert the program of their interest in being nominated for a Vector Scholarship in AI. In addition, the program can solicit top applicants to complete the requisite documentation for the scholarship application.
