Funding/Awards

It is the rule of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences that every graduate student must be paid an adequate stipend. This is a prerequisite for acceptance into the M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs in the Division of Experimental Medicine. Students must be finally supported by either a) their supervisor, b) through studentships or fellowships, or c) a foreign government body who awards a scholarship for study abroad. The Division does not accept self-funded students.

The minimum annual stipend for the 2022-2023 academic year for M.Sc. and Ph.D. students* is:

$20,000 Base Living Allowance + Tuition and Student Fees

*Exception: M.Sc. DHI students do not receive a stipend in their first year of studies. Stipends for DHI students will begin May 1st of their first year of studies.

Tuition Fee Information can be found here: Graduate Tuition Fee Calculator

Tuition Fee Supplement:

In an effort to assist and alleviate the burden of the high International Tuition Fees, the Division offers a Tuition Support to eligible International M.Sc. and Ph.D. students and Out-of-Province M.Sc. students. Further information on the Tuition Fee Supplement can be found here (https://www.mcgill.ca/expmed/funding-and-awards/internal-awards)
