Fall 2012 – Summer 2013
The Fellowships and Awards section of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies provides processing services for many sources of support for Canadian and non-Canadian students, both new to McGill and continuing. Further information on these and other sources of funding can be found in various publications on the Fellowships and Awards web pages. The Graduate Fellowships and Awards Calendar lists all internal awards as well as numerous external awards.
Entrance Fellowships are awarded on the basis of the application for admission, upon nomination by academic departments. Most internal fellowships are awarded in this manner—please contact the proposed academic department directly for further information.
Research assistantships, teaching assistantships, and stipends from professors' research grants are handled by individual academic departments at McGill. Fellowships, assistantships, and stipends are used to make funding packages for graduate students. All assistantship and stipend inquiries should be directed to departments.
A small number of citizens from countries whose governments have entered into agreements on tuition fees with Quebec may be exempted from the supplemental tuition fees normally required of international students. All French citizens and a limited number of citizens of countries in the list, which can be found at www.mels.gouv.qc.ca/sections/publications/index.asp?page=fiche&id=1039, are eligible for such exemptions. For more information and the necessary application materials, see www.mels.gouv.qc.ca/international/index_en.asp?page=progExemp. The list of organizations where students should apply can be accessed from this website.
Differential Fee Waivers (DFWs) for international students provide eligible non-Canadian graduate students with waivers of the international tuition fee supplement. There are no application forms for differential fee waivers, since these are awarded on the basis of departmental nominations made to the Fellowships and Awards section. Eligible students should contact their McGill department.
