The Department actively sponsors qualified students in their attempts to obtain funding. Canadians and permanent residents can apply for funding from internal sources and from several federal and provincial granting agencies. Information can be found on the web page Future Graduate Students. Other sources of support include scholarships awarded by the Faculty of Medicine of McGill University, or through research grants held by researchers within the Department. Sources of funding for non-Canadian students have recently increased, but we also encourage these applicants to investigate other possible funding sources (for example, government and other scholarships from their countries of origin). The Department offers numerous studentships annually.
