Funding Information

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 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 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 is well-informed and friendly, and encourages 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.

2 Financing Graduate Education

There are different ways to finance graduate studies at McGill University. A graduate student can:

In 2001-02, graduate students received over $6 million in McGill fellowships and $4.6 million in salaries. They also attracted approximately $10 million in fellowship funding from Canadian and Quebec Government sources, as well as $1.4 million in differential fee waivers for international students from the Quebec government. Over $13 million form research grants and contracts was devoted to graduate student support. Preliminary estimates indicate that over $4 million in fellowships was obtained through other external sources.

1) External Granting Agency Fellowships
are listed in section 3, "External Fellowships". Currently, the value of awards offered by these agencies (including those supported by the Canadian and Quebec governments) varies from approximately $15,000 to $21,000 per year. Many may be renewed. Application deadlines for the majority of external granting agency fellowships fall during October to November, for fellowships tenable in September of the following year. Fellowships offered by external granting agencies for postdoctoral level study and research are described in section 7, "Postdoctoral Fellowships". Opportunities for funding to pursue graduate study and research outside of Canada are listed in section 8, "Exchange and Travelling Fellowships".
2) McGill Graduate Fellowships
are described in detail in section 4, "McGill Graduate Fellowships". McGill Major Fellowships (valued at $10,000 - $15,000 per year, for one or more years) are offered only to students already enrolled in a Master's or doctoral program at McGill, who meet the specific eligibility requirements of the year's competition. Details regarding eligibility and specific deadlines for McGill Major Fellowships are available in early September from departments and the GPSO Fellowships and Awards Section Web site. For McGill students in the social science and humanities disciplines, the McGill Major Fellowship application deadline coincides with that of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) doctoral fellowships competition (generally during the month of October). For McGill students in the natural science and engineering, and medical science disciplines the deadline coincides with that of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Postgraduate Scholarships competition (generally during the month of October). All students are advised to check deadlines with their departments during the summer.

Students need not be eligible for funding through external agencies in order to apply for a McGill Major Fellowship. However, all applicants for McGill Major funding must, if eligible, have applied to CIHR, SSHRC or NSERC and, if eligible, to the Quebec funding agencies: Fonds Québécois de la Recherche sur la Nature et les Technologies (FQRNT), Fonds Québécois de la Recherche sur la Société et la Culture (FQRSC) or Fonds de la recherche en santé du Québec (FRSQ).

Application forms for the McGill Major Fellowships are available to students currently enrolled at McGill from the GPSO Fellowships and Awards Web site at: www.mcgill.ca/gps under Fall competitions. Completed application forms and all supporting documents should be returned directly to the academic department. No documentation should be sent to the GPSO Fellowships and Awards Section. Applications for McGill Graduate Fellowships tenable beginning in September 2004 must be received by McGill departments during the fall semester of 2004 (check with departments for specific deadlines).

In addition to the McGill Major Fellowships for continuing graduate students, McGill University provides a number of Recruitment Fellowships. There are two types of Recruitment Fellowships. Some are awarded through a specific competition, such as the Richard H. Tomlinson Fellowships (section 4.1.1), and the Max Stern McCord Museum Fellowships (see section 4.1.3, "Discipline-specific Recruitment Fellowships"). Others, such as the Max Stern Recruitment Fellowships (section 4.1.2), and the Graduate Studies Fellowships (section 4.6) are allocated to selected academic departments for outstanding applicants seeking first admission to graduate studies at McGill during the following academic year. All applicants for first-time graduate admission are automatically considered by departments for a recruitment fellowship, if the unit has one to offer. There are no application forms, since awards are based exclusively on departmental nomination. For additional information, students should consult the academic unit from which they request admission.

3) McGill Departmental and Faculty Awards
are listed in section 5, "Fellowships awarded by Departments and Faculties". It is the responsibility of the department, academic unit or faculty administering these awards to determine deadlines and values. Consequently, they vary greatly. The student should contact the Graduate Studies Coordinator or Director of the academic unit in which he/she intends to study for more information regarding departmental and faculty awards.
4) Stipends from Research Grants of Contracts
provide an important source of support for graduate students in research programs. A faculty member can budget for support of graduate students to work on their thesis or project research when they apply for research grants. Several granting agencies allow the support to be treated as scholarship income for the student. Granting agencies usually specify either a minimum or maximum value for a stipend. Students should enquire with their proposed supervisor or department on the availability of stipends at the time of admission.
5) Loans and Bursaries
are administered by the province in which the student is deemed to be a resident. Basic qualifications are that the applicant is a full-time student and a Canadian citizen; certain categories of Permanent Residents may also be eligible. The Quebec Student Loan and Canada Student Loan programs operate exclusively on the basis of financial need. Several provinces augment their loan programs with a loan forgiveness programs to help students reduce their debt loads. The McGill Student Aid Office provides information regarding application procedures of these government loan programs. The Student Aid Office also administers institutional need-based funding including short-term loans to cover emergency situations, limited bursary assistance and a Work/Study program. Further information is provided in section 6, "Student Financial Assistance".
6) Differential Fee Waivers for International Students
are available through three mechanisms: (a) McGill University is allocated a number of Differential Fee Waivers (DFWs) that it allocates through the departments. International students should enquire with their department for information regarding how to aply for these. (b) International students who register in Master's and Doctoral studies in French Language and Literature or Master's studies in Second Language Education (French as a Second Language) are exempt from the international supplement. (c) All students from France and a limited number of students from countries that entered bilateral agreements with Quebec have access to DFWs. Except for French citizens, students from such countries (see list in section 2.4) should apply to their home country for a DFW during the application for admission process.

2.1 General Fellowships Information

When an external fellowship announcement, received by the GPSO Fellowships and Awards Section, is of particular interest to a specific department or academic unit, the information is forwarded to that unit for posting and/or circulation. In addition, announcements of general interest are posted on the bulletin board outside the GPSO Fellowships and Awards Section, James Administration Building, Room 400. It is also entered into the computerized data bank of the Office for specialized searches and consultation by students, potential students and faculty members. The GPSO Fellowships and Awards Section maintains a small collection of reference books on funding for graduate study. These may be consulted at the reception desk.

2.2 Reference Books

In addition to the resources offered by the GPSO Fellowships and Awards Section, those seeking support for graduate study are encouraged to consult one or more of the many reference books and directories on the subject. Many major libraries, including McGill's McLennan Library, have publications listing fellowships and awards for graduate study, including the following:

Awards Almanac;
Annual Register of Grant Support;
Awards for Postgraduate Study at Commonwealth Universities;
Directory of Financial Aids for Women;
Directory of Research Grants;
Foundation Grant Index;
Grants Register;
National Student Aid Information Service;
Postgraduate Study in Britain;
Registry of Awards for Advanced Research in the Humanities;
Study Abroad;
Scholarships, Fellowships and Loans.

2.3 Funding Information on the Web

This publication is accessible on the Web at www.mcgill.ca/gps/fellowships under Publications. The GPSO site also contains specific information on competitions and links to the sites of various funding agencies, and forms for several McGill fellowships and awards may be downloaded.

The Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies Office also publishes a general guide on funding strategies entitled Making Ends Meet, which can also be found at www.mcgill.ca/gps/fellowships under Publications.

McGill University subscribes to the SPIN database for sources of research funding. The database is accessible free of charge to the end user from any computer on the McGill domain (or in any other participating university/institution). The database now carries a number of graduate and postdoctoral "fellowships, scholarships, awards, prizes, etc.". Access to the SPIN database, and search tips can be found at www.mcgill.ca/gps/fellowships.

Information for international students and fellows wishing to study in Canada is available on the Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE) Web site at

www.destineducation.ca/index-flash.htm.

2.4 Information for International Students and Fellows

Funding opportunities for international students are not as plentiful as they are for Canadians since many forms of assistance provided by the federal and provincial governments are offered only to Canadian citizens or Permanent Residents of Canada. Opportunities for supplementing fellowship income by employment are also scarcer since international students and their dependents are not normally permitted by Canadian immigration authorities to work outside the university. Immigration officials also require all international students entering Canada to provide proof that they possess sufficient funds to cover at least one academic year's stay in Canada as well as return fare home. McGill's International Student Advisor suggests that single students have a minimum of $15,000 for living expenses, in addition to tuition and ancillary fees, for every twelve months of study in Canada.

Non-Canadian students can, nonetheless, draw on a considerable variety of fellowships and other forms of assistance. There are, to begin with, several large, multi-disciplinary programs specifically aimed at funding study in Canada by students from abroad. These include: the Canadian Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Program; the Government of Canada Awards to Foreign Nationals; and the Technical Assistance Scholarships and Fellowships and Canadian Fellowship Program for French- Speaking Countries, funded by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA). Applications for all these programs must be made through the government of the applicant's home country, usually via the Ministry of Education. Applications sent by individuals directly to Canada cannot be considered.

All French citizens and a limited number of citizens supported by the following countries or governments may apply for an exemption of this type: Germany (a certain number of holders of Deutscher Akademisher Austauschdienst scholarships [DAAD]), Algeria, Andorra, Belgium (some members of the Communauté française and of the Flemish Community), Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Catalonia, China, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Republic of the Congo, Côte d'Ivoire, Egypt, Flemish Community, Gabon, Guinea, Israel, Lebanon, Luxembourg, Madagascar, Mali, Mauritania, Mexico, Niger, Panama, Peru, Rwanda, Senegal, Togo, Tunisia and Viet Nam. Students must apply to the government authorities (usually the Ministry of Education) of their home country at the time they apply for admission to the selected Quebec university. The foreign government authorities make the official recommendation of students to be exempted from higher fees. Further information can be found at www.meq.gouv.qc.ca/ens-sup/ens-univ/Coop.asp.

In addition, many of McGill's Graduate Fellowships, as well as many of the fellowships and prizes offered by various McGill departments and faculties, are offered without any restrictions concerning nationality. Unless otherwise specified in the description, fellowships listed in this brochure are open to students from all countries. International students should also note that the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies Office makes it possible for some non-Canadian students to pay reduced foreign fees, by granting differential fee waivers. See section 4.5, "Differential Fee Waivers", as well as section 8, "Exchange and Travelling Fellowships".

Additional information on opportunities for financial assistance available to international graduate students and fellows can be found in the UNESCO publication "Study Abroad", available for consultation at the GPSO Fellowships and Awards Section, McLennan Library, as well as many national libraries around the world. "Study Abroad" can also be purchased directly from UNESCO distributors in member countries. The Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE) produces a free brochure entitled "Study in Canada", available on the Web at www.cbie.ca or upon request to: CBIE, 220 Laurier Avenue West, Suite 1100, Ottawa, Ontario K1P 5Z9 (613) 237-4820. International students may also find some general information regarding university study in Canada at various Canadian consulates and embassy offices abroad.

3 External Fellowships

External Fellowships are a major component of graduate student funding at McGill. The primary sources of external fellowships are the Federal Research Councils and the Quebec Provincial Research Funds which provided approximately $10 million. The three Quebec agencies are: the Fonds Québécois de la Recherche sur la Nature et les Technologies (FQRNT), the Fonds Québécois de la Recherce sur la Société et la Culture (FQRSC) and the Fonds de la recherche en santé du Québec (FRSQ). The Federal Councils are: the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). The balance of external fellowships comes from a variety of award programs sponsored by private companies, agencies, foundations, other provincial and federal government agencies, as well as foreign governments and organizations. For every dollar that McGill graduate students received through the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies Office, approximately eight dollars was received from external fellowships.

Students who wish to be considered for graduate level funding from external sources should contact the specific funding agency directly, as well as the McGill department where they intend to undertake graduate study and/or the GPSO Fellowships and Awards Section in order to ascertain their individual eligibility and specific program application or nomination procedures. Competitions often take place one full year ahead of award tenure, therefore it is advisable to make inquiries well in advance of the date when funding is required. The GPSO Fellowships and Awards Section maintains up-to-date information and application forms for many externally funded award programs and will provide this when possible to interested individuals. It is, however, the responsibility of the applicant to verify directly with the agency all application procedures and deadlines, since these are subject to change each year.

Many funding agencies now have Web sites and some of them provide electronic application forms as well. Here are a few:

EXTERNAL FELLOWSHIPS AND MCGILL FELLOWSHIPS

Students need not be eligible for funding through an external agency named above in order to apply for a McGill Major Fellowship. However, all applicants for McGill Major funding must, if eligible, have applied to CIHR, SSHRC or NSERC and, if eligible to the Quebec funding agency Fonds Québécois de la Recherche sur la Nature et les Techologies (FQRNT), Fonds Québécois de la Recherce sur la Société et la Culture (FQRSC) or Fonds de la recherche en santé du Québec (FRSQ).

TRANSCRIPTS AND DEADLINES

To obtain transcripts for larger external award competitions including FQRNT (formerly FCAR), FQRSC, FRSQ (formerly FCAR), NSERC and SSHRC, students must apply to their departmental graduate office several weeks prior to the application deadline. Students should check with their department or the Fellowships and Awards Section about all transcript ordering procedures and deadlines.

Deadlines for graduate and postdoctoral scholarships, fellowships and awards competitions from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), Fonds Québécois de la Recherche sur la Nature et les Technologies (FQRNT), Fonds Québécois de la Recherce sur la Société et la Culture (FQRSC), and the Fonds de la recherche en santé du Québec (FRSQ) generally fall in early October. Thus students should begin planning their external applications as early as August. The applicant is responsible for fulfilling the application requirements, using the forms for the current year. If the application form for the current year is not available in August, the student should nevertheless proceed to draft a proposed plan of study and research, and discuss it with two faculty members, who can later serve as referees.

4.2 McGill Major Fellowships (for continuing students only)

Each year the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies Office of McGill University awards McGill Major Fellowships valued at $10,000 to $15,000 per year. Applications for most such fellowships are reviewed by the Graduate Fellowships Committee, while a small number are granted on the basis of departmental and/or faculty nominations.

Students who wish to be considered for graduate level funding offered by McGill, should immediately contact the department where they intend to undertake graduate study and/or the GPSO Fellowships and Awards Section in order to ascertain the sources of McGill funding for which they are eligible. Competitions often take place one full year ahead of award tenure, therefore it is advisable to make inquiries well in advance of the date when funding is required. It should be noted that virtually all McGill Graduate awards tenable in a given year are restricted to students who were enrolled in a McGill graduate program during the preceding year.

Value and Eligibility

Students already enrolled in Master's or doctoral study at McGill, may apply for a McGill Major Fellowship (valued at $10,000 - $15,000 per year, renewable in some cases), provided they meet the specific eligibility requirements of the year's competition. Details regarding eligibility and specific deadlines and application forms for McGill Major Fellowships are available from departments and the GPSO Fellowships and Awards Section. Tenure of Major fellowships is restricted to students registered full-time in the Ph.D.2 through to the Ph.D. 5 year.

Application Deadlines and Forms

All applications for McGill Major fellowships must be ranked by departments; applications should not be sent directly to the GPSO Fellowships and Awards Section.

For students in the social science and humanities disciplines, the McGill Major Fellowship application deadline coincides with that of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) doctoral fellowships competition (generally early during the month of October). For students in natural science, engineering and medical science disciplines, the deadline coincides with that of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Postgraduate Scholarships competition (generally early during the month of October). For students in medical sciences, the deadline coincides with that of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Doctoral Awards competition (generally early during the month of October). Forms and instructions are based on the corresponding external agencies' application forms and are available on the Web at www.mcgill.ca/gps.

External Fellowships and McGill Major Fellowships

All applicants for McGill Major funding must, if eligible, have applied to CIHR, SSHRC or NSERC and, if eligible to the Quebec funding agency Fonds Québécois de la Recherche sur la Nature et les technologies (FQRNT), Fonds Québécois de la Recherche sur la Société et la Culture (FQRSC) or Fonds de la recherche en santé du Québec (FRSQ).

Students who are offered both a McGill Major Fellowship and any other external or internal fellowship worth $10,000 or more (including fee subsidies) must accept the latter and decline the Major. However, in some cases, students may be eligible for "topping-up" with a partial McGill Major Fellowship.

Announcement of Results

The final results of the McGill Major Fellowships competitions are announced in May by letter. The GPSO Fellowships and Awards Section will not give results over the telephone.
