Doctoral candidates will receive $25,000/year in guaranteed funding for four years. Financial support for the four years is comprised of a PhD Program in Management Guaranteed Funding Award (MGFA), which includes a variety of internal sources of funding. Your MGFA may also include a McGill fellowship (to be be determined at a later date). All funding is conditional on satisfactory academic performance.
Students that receive external awards (i.e., SSHRC, CHIR, NSERC, etc.) will receive partial guaranteed funding from the supervisor/area.
If you are enrolled in a doctoral program at another university and wish to attend McGill for a limited period of time (up to a maximum of 12 months) to conduct research only, you must apply as a Graduate Research Trainee (GRT). You are encouraged to approach a faculty member who is willing to supervise your research for your duration at Desautels Faculty of Management. Once you have secured a supervisor, you will need to submit an application as a Graduate Research Trainee. The category of Graduate Research Trainee cannot be used to conduct the majority of thesis research
