International graduate students can fund their time at Queen's through a combination of stipends, awards, bursaries and employment opportunities.
As for domestic students, Queen's has a guaranteed minimum stipend for funding-eligible international PhD students currently valued at $18,000.
Effective 1st September 2010, all new doctoral international graduate students without full external government funding who are admitted to full-time study at Queen's are eligible to receive an International Tuition Award. Under this program, each new international full-time student receives an award to be held during his or her funding-eligible years of study. The annual award is applied as a tuition credit directly to the students' fees account. Please contact the graduate coordinator of the department you are interested in for details.
In November 2010 the Government of Ontario announced the creation of the Ontario Trillium Scholarships(OTS) program for highly qualified international Ph.D students. Queen’s University OTS recipients are chosen through the annual fellowship competition. The amount of the OTS is $40,000 annually to the recipient Ph.D. students. The OTS is renewable for four years, if certain conditions are met each year upon renewal. Queen's has been awarded five (5) OTS awards each year.
Like domestic students, prospective or enrolled international graduate students do not make individual application for most internal named fellowships or scholarships or departmental awards administered by the School of Graduate Studies.
