The Office of the Vice-President, Research and Graduate Studies, has implemented a Scholarships program to encourage promising students to continue their master’s and doctoral studies. The program, in addition to offering significant support to student researchers, is a catalyst for securing scholarships from granting agencies.
It provides master’s degree recipients with a grant of $10,000 each year for 2 years and PhD recipients with $15,000 each year for 3 years. By securing such an amount for their research project, students may then apply for a scholarship with an external granting agency using this award secured with the UdeS as leverage to set themselves apart, as having already secured a scholarship is regarded as a token of excellence by provincial and federal agencies reviewing applications.
This is our way of directly helping graduate students to be relieved of certain financial obligations while allowing them to fully concentrate on their studies.
Financial assistance options are not exclusively offered to students with excellent academic records. A number of scholarships are also offered through private funds and managed by the UdeS Foundation.
