Funding/Awards

It is the rule of the Division that every graduate student must be paid an adequate stipend. This is a prerequisite for acceptance into the M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs. Thus, all students accepted to our programs must be financially supported either by their supervisor or through studentships or fellowships.

The current minimum annual stipend is:

Master’s level:

  • Canadian - Quebec Residents: a minimum of $18,500/year.

  • Canadian - Non-Quebec Residents: a minimum of $22,000/year for 3 semesters; $18,500/year, thereafter.

  • International students: a minimum of $22,500/year, for 3 semesters; $18,500/year, thereafter.

Doctoral level:

  • Canadian - Quebec and Non-Quebec Residents: a minimum of $18,500/year.

  • International students: a minimum of $22,500/year, for 6 semesters; if admitted at the Ph.D. 2 level (with a prior M.Sc.) and for 8 semesters; if admitted at the Ph.D. 1 level (without a prior M.Sc.); $18,500/year, thereafter.

Prospective students are urged to make every effort to secure their own funding. Several studentships or fellowships are available to students on a first-come, first-serve basis.
