Students in this program are required to be self-funded. Students will need to apply for any funding independently.
Once you are accepted into the program, and once you are registered at McGill, you can apply for Research Assistant (paying between 4000-10000$) and Teaching Assistant (~1500$ each) positions. For TA positions, you will need to consult the department website in the fall and winter terms. For RA opportunities, you will need to email professors who match your research interests to see if they have any RA positions available.
There are also around 4-5 scholarships within the IWRM Program available for the internship projects (between 7000 - 10000$) that you can apply for. Many of the internships available to MSc in IWRM students are paid. Examples include 2-4 full scholarships every summer at Technion University, Hebrew University, and BenGurion University in Israel, and some opportunities in the UK.
Funding is also available for 2-3 students each summer to study water management issues with communities in Canada’s North and indigenous communities across Canada.
