Stipend Funding

The information on this page is accurate as of Jan 2022


Graduate students in the IPN receive guaranteed funding in the form of annual student stipends. McGill University defines a student stipend as "an award paid to a student from a supervisor's research funds which will assist the student in qualifying for a degree or other scholastic recognition in the field in which the research is being carried out." Student stipends are intended to financially support the student, so that they can pay for their tuition and fees, and living expenses. Stipends are given to the student throughout their degree, given that they demonstrate adequate progress and meet the required program milestones. Personal or family financing is generally not permitted as part of stipend funding.

The table below reflects the minimum stipend amounts for all existing and new students beginning Fall 2022. Stipends are subject to increase annually by approximately 3%-5%, following University tuition rates.

We will be offering continued financial support for all existing international students to account for the increase in the fees and new international students will have the opportunity to be supported by differential fee support via a competitive mechanism. International PhD applicants who do not win a competitive differential fee support can be recruited with support from their supervisor.
