Each faculty and/or department provides financial assistance to students already enrolled in their master’s and doctoral programs. International students enrolled at the UdeS are also eligible. The allocation criteria for these scholarships vary and are managed by each faculty or department. The best way to obtain relevant information is to contact the Graduate Studies Secretariat of their faculty or its equivalent.
A number of professors include amounts in their grant applications to financially support students participating in their research. This support may be in the form of a scholarship or a salary. You may verify this with the professor directly.
Teaching loads and research or teaching assistant jobs are other examples of funding as salary. These jobs help generate income support for studies. They are also a relevant training supplement that may help integrate learning. However, at no time may the research or teaching assistant job hinder the completion of studies. Address these questions with professors to find out about the options offered in your discipline.
Each year, provincial and federal granting agencies organize excellence scholarship competitions to support the best master’s and doctoral research candidates.
