Graduate students have access to several types of competitive funding in the form of fellowships, awards and assistantships from the Faculty of Arts and Science, its departments, and the School of Graduate Studies. Qualified candidates are encouraged to apply for Concordia University graduate fellowships, as well as awards from outside agencies. In addition, a limited number of teaching assistantships are available to qualified applicants undertaking full-time graduate studies.
The Offices of the Vice-President, Research and Graduate Studies (OVPRGS) and Provost and Vice-President, Academic Affairs, are pleased to announce the continuation of the Concordia Undergraduate Student Research Awards (CUSRA) program for a second year. The CUSRA program provides funding to students in the fine arts, social sciences, humanities, engineering and computer science, business disciplines, and natural and health sciences. The goal of the awards is to stimulate interest in research, participatory research, or research-creation work that will complement undergraduate coursework and enhance preparation for graduate studies or research-related careers.
The Faculty of Arts and Science provides support, on a competitive basis, to graduate and undergraduate students who are traveling to present papers, posters or exhibits at academic conferences. Complete application dossiers should be submitted to the Department Administrator at least 2 weeks prior to the conference.
