    Hello,

    I recently got admitted to the DiAcc (leading to the Master of Accounting) Program at Schulich School of Business. I wanted to know more about the OGS; the application process, supporting documents required, deadlines for submission and the overall eligibility criterion for the scholarship.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Thanks,
    Saad Khan
