1.3 A Message from the Dean

Graduate study and research in all scholarly, scientific and
professional disciplines depends upon adequate financial support for students and postdoctoral fellows. At McGill University, the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies Office,Fellowships and Awards Section provides information and administers several major McGill internal fellowship competitions each year. The Office also coordinates McGill applications and distributes information related to numerous graduate and postdoctoral fellowship and award competitions administered outside the University. The Office works closely with individual applicants, academic departments at McGill, and external granting agencies in order to facilitate applications for all these sources of funding.

This Graduate Fellowships and Awards Calendar is published yearly by the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies Office (GPSO), Fellowships and Awards Section to furnish current and prospective McGill students with information about financing graduate education. It contains descriptions of all of McGill's internal graduate fellowships, as well as many external fellowships tenable for graduate and postdoctoral level study. In addition to this Calendar, the Office maintains a computerized data bank of many other, smaller or more specialized external fellowships and awards.

Students seeking admission to a McGill graduate program should note that individual academic departments make decisions about admission. The GPSO Fellowships and Awards Section will be pleased to advise about possible sources of funding; however, applications for funding should be directed to the department into which admission is sought. Students already enrolled in graduate studies at McGill may apply for some fellowships on their own and some through the auspices of their academic department. Appropriate procedures for application vary according to the particular fellowship.

The staff of the Office are well informed and friendly, and encourage all current and prospective McGill students to visit, call, e mail or write to obtain further information on appropriate sources of funding for graduate education. Students should also consult the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies web page for a useful and informative document entitled Making Ends Meet (

I wish you every success in obtaining adequate funding for your graduate studies.
