Funding presentations

Funding presentations are given to current McGill graduate students each fall semester. If you're a prospective graduate student applying for federal external fellowships, they may be very useful to you as well. Each session will include information on award basics: application and award processes; eligibility requirements; supporting documents; application must-haves; and how McGill supports you throughout the application process.

These sessions are intended for students with a GPA of 3.5 or higher, and who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada.

  • Applying for your Master’s NSERC, SSHRC, CIHR Award (webinar): All master’s candidates attend this session regardless to which agency they are applying.
  • Applying for your NSERC Doctoral Award (webinar): Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) is a Tri-Council member that awards grants for natural sciences and engineering research.
  • Applying for your SSHRC Doctoral Award (webinar): Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) is a Tri-Council member that promotes and supports research and research training in the social sciences and humanities.
  • Applying for your CIHR Doctoral Award (webinar): Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) is a Tri-Council member that awards grants for students specializing in biomedical; clinical; health systems services; and social, cultural, environmental and population health.
  • Would you fund it? Fellowship consultation session is a new layer of application review open to graduate and undergraduate students who are applying for external funding. Students will have the opportunity to have their two-page project summary reviewed by a former Tri-council or Quebec committee reviewer in a 20 minute appointment. The reviewer will scan the document and provide feedback on the structure, relevance, and language accuracy with suggestions on how to improve the draft.
