Graduate student funding and awards

Graduate funding and awards

The Department of Political Science is distinguished by its record of scholarly publication and its success in securing external research funding. There has never been a better time to consider McGill for graduate study in political science, at both the M.A. and Ph.D. levels.

General information on funding and awards for graduate students is available from Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies HERE. In addition, individual faculty members often use external grant funds to support students working in the faculty members’ particular areas of interest. Please consult faculty members’ websites for more information about their current research projects.
