The  CMOS - Weather Research House NSERC Scholarship Supplement in Atmospheric or Oceanographic Sciences
The  CMOS - Weather Research House NSERC Scholarship Supplement  is awarded to a student in atmospheric or ocean sciences who has succeeded in winning an NSERC Postgraduate Scholarship or an NSERC Alexander Graham Bell Canada Graduate Scholarship.  

This supplement provides support to high-calibre students who are working towards a master's or doctoral degree in atmospheric or oceanic sciences. CMOS grants one new award each year.

The initial award is $5,000.  This is renewable for a second year provided the student continues to hold the NSERC postgraduate scholarship.

At the time of application for the scholarship supplement, the student must be studying or planning to study atmospheric or oceanic sciences in a recognized postgraduate program. All branches of atmospheric sciences, including hydrology, are acceptable. In the oceanic and limnological sciences, biological research is not accepted, unless it is as an indicator of physical/dynamical/chemical processes.
History of the scholarship
This scholarship was first awarded in 1998.
