Student Research Grants

CSDC offers 4 grants up to $2,500 each per academic year for MA and PhD students. These research grants are meant to facilitate thesis related research or knowledge mobilization ideas that are not eligible or suitable for funding from other sources. Please note also that the committee looks favourably upon research that will be conducted in concert with the resources of the Media Lab (both on-line and on-site). The grants will be awarded on a competitive basis.

Please send your application as a single PDF file containing all the sections of the application (except reference letters) by email to csdc-cecd [at] mcgill.ca.

*New 2017. There are now four deadlines: January 15, April 15, August 15, November 15

Note that we cannot pay subject fees and per hourly pay for research assistants. All budget items must comply with FRQSC rules of spending.

Following the review of the application by the steering committee, the applicant will receive an email notification with details of the decision regarding the Research grant allocation.
