Graduate fellowships

TISED currently supports McGill graduate fellowships that are funded through generous donations, from: TOTAL E&P Canada - the TOTAL ISEAD Fellowship and Howard Stotland and Vivian Miller - the Stotland Family ISEAD Fellowship.

TISED also supports fellowships for research projects related to sustainability. The fellowships, with leveraged funding, are awarded for three years and are administered as part of the McGill Engineering Doctoral Award (MEDA) program by the Faculty of Engineering.

Undergraduate scholarships

TISED supports fourteen in-course Undergraduate Scholarships that are funded through generous donations. The Faculty of Engineering administers these scholarships. If you would like to know more about the scholarships, please see the Undergraduate Scholarships and Awards Calendar in the Internal Scholarships of Faculty of Engineering.

Policy input

Working with various partners, including IET, TISED will be contribute to policy development by publishing white papers and writing briefs on global sustainability issues and on topics related to federal and provincial sustainability policies.

Internships

TISED actively encourages its industrial partners to provide openings for student interns. The initiative forms part of the larger Faculty of Engineering internship program administered by the McGill Engineering Student Centre (MESC). For more information on student internships in industry, visit the internship section of the Engineering Career Centre website.
