Scholarships, awards, and bursaries
Funding is a key component in a graduate student's life, but applying for grants can be confusing and overwhelming. Here are some guidelines to help you navigate your way through the process.
The Graduate Studies Office is the best place to look for funding opportunities. You can:
- search the graduate awards and funding database for a complete list of available awards, scholarships, and bursaries;
- find the application forms to apply for funding;
- learn more about external awards (NSERC, SSHRC, OGS, QEII-GSST); and
- receive transcript instructions for scholarship competitions
