Awards and Financial

All students accepted for full-time admission into full -time graduate programs are considered for limited funding from the department/program. In addition to department/program funding, there are some internal fellowships and scholarships available annually. Prospective or enrolled students do not make individual application for most internal fellowships or scholarships administered by the School of Graduate Studies. Departments/Programs are notified of all annual fellowship competitions, and nominate eligible students appropriately. Most of these fellowship allocation decisions are made in June.

In their own interests, applicants and continuing students must make early inquiry and annual application for fellowship support to all possible sources external to Queen's University, to ensure adequate financial assistance.  Many external awards are restricted to Canadian citizens and landed immigrants who have held this status at least one year.  Some Queen's University internal awards have similar restrictions.  In particular, some internal fellowships, scholarships and awards are designated as "Ontario Student Opportunity Trust Funds (OSOTF)" OR "Ontario Trust for Student Support (OTSS) awards.  These are awards that have resulted from the Ontario government's "matching" programs.  Under the program, the Ontario government has matched every dollar of donation received for student assistance.  There are two major conditions for all OSOTF/OTSS awards, scholarships and fellowships:  recipients must be Ontario residents, and demonstrate financial need.

After ensuring that any applications for external awards have been made, Departments/Programs review the individual merits and circumstances of incoming and continuing students. They make recommendation to the Fellowship Committee of the School of Graduate Studies for Queen's internal scholarships and other merit awards and bursaries.  Departments/Programs assist students, where possible, out of support funds at their own disposal.

Since students with physical or learning disabilities may require a longer period of time than usual to complete a program of graduate study, Departments/Programs may in duly attested cases, give special consideration to extending the normal period of support from Department/Program sources. They may also, in consultation with the Coordinator of Services for Special Needs and the Director of the Student Counselling Service, or the Director of Student Health Service, recommend to the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies that such students be considered for additional support from Student Wellness Services.

Students registered as part-time in a graduate degree program to accommodate a documented permanent disability may be eligible for internal scholarships and awards when the terms of the awards permit this flexibility.

The School of Graduate Studies will extend the normal funding eligibility period for graduate students whose documented permanent disability impacts their academic progress such that more time to complete their degree is required; a request for such extension should normally be made within the first term of study. An extension provides students with the option of distributing the normal funding package over a longer period of time. The allocation of funding support beyond the funding eligible period will be considered on a case-by-case basis, based on the principle of individualized and particular accommodations and, if granted, will normally be limited to no more than one additional term for Master’s students or one additional year for doctoral students.

Awards held by students who are required to withdraw or who withdraw voluntarily, or who become withdrawn due to failure to maintain registration, will be terminated, and students may be required to repay some or the entire award. In the case of some external granting bodies, refund of the award portion paid out is mandatory if the award holder withdraws from the graduate program.  Partial or complete award repayment is also required if a student switches to part-time, or inactive, status.

Research Assistantships

Faculty who are engaged on extensive research programs and who are holders of major research grants usually require, as assistants, several graduate students who are working in a field of study related to that of the research program.

Time spent on such research will normally be accepted as part of the academic requirements for the student's degree program.

Holders of major merit awards may not receive further assistance from a research grant that is from the same granting agency as the award.

Financial support that is provided through a research contract may contain terms and conditions that will obligate the student, as a participant, to act in accordance with the research agreement signed with the sponsor. If students have concerns about this kind of financial support, they should contact the department/program graduate coordinator.

University Research Services (URS) provides a range of advice and administrative support services for Queen's University researchers. For more information, see the University Research Services website.

Teaching Assistantships

Most graduate departments/programs engage several graduate students each year to assist in undergraduate teaching, tutorial work, and laboratory demonstrating, as Teaching Assistants (TAs).

At Queen’s University, TAs are unionized members of the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC). The collective agreement is posted on the Faculty Relations Office website.

The Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL) provides programming, resources and support for graduate students’ and post-docs’ development as educators.

Non-Competitive Awards and Loans

Government-sponsored Financial Assistance Programs

Each province in Canada has financial assistance available on need-assessment basis for post-secondary study. These government aid programs are the major source of funds for students who have limited financial resources; however, government aid programs are based on the assumption that it is primarily the responsibility of the student and their parents or spouse to provide for post-secondary education. In this province, the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) combines assistance available through the Canada Student Loan Plan and the Ontario Student Loan Plan. The amount of loan under the (OSAP) program, which is determined by the provincial government, takes into consideration the financial resources of the student and their parents or spouse. No interest or principal payments are required on the Canada or Ontario Student Loan while the student is in full-time attendance at an approved post-secondary institution. Interest charges during this period are paid by the federal and provincial governments. After the interest free period, interest charges begin to accrue on the unpaid balance of all consolidated loans. Ontario residents who may qualify for (OSAP) may obtain paper application forms and further information from the Office of the University Registrar (Student Awards), Queen's University or the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development, Student Support Branch, P.O. Box 4500, 189 Red River Rd., 4th Floor, Thunder Bay, Ontario, P7B 6G9 after 1 April. Completed application forms should be forwarded to the Office of the University Registrar (Student Awards), Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario K7L 3N6. It is strongly recommended that paper applications reach the Student Awards Office prior to 1 July. Information and application is also available on the internet at the following address: http://osap.gov.on.ca Non-residents of Ontario must apply to their own province for any provincial aid that may be available.

Work Study Program

The Work Study program is offered to provide students with demonstrated financial need with the opportunity to receive priority for certain part-time jobs during their studies. The Work Study Program is a need-based program, meant to supplement, not replace, government student assistance, student and family contribution. Students must demonstrate a financial need over resources available to them in order to be eligible for the program. More information and application materials are available from the Student Awards Office website

Financial Assistance for Students With Disabilities

There is a range of financial assistance and services available to students with disabilities at Queen's. For more information,see the website of the Office of the University Registrar (Student Awards).

Part-time Canada Student Loan/Special Opportunity Grant Program (PTCSL/SOG)

In order to be eligible for a Part-time Canada Student Loan/Special Opportunity Grant, you must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada, as well as a resident of a province or territory that participates in the Canada Student Loans Program. You may take a maximum 40% course load (1.0 credits per term). (Graduate students must be part-time.) This part-time program only considers direct educational costs (i.e., tuition, compulsory fees, books, etc.); there is no assistance to cover living expenses. The government has outlined the maximum total family gross income and assets per family size a student must meet in order to qualify for assistance. The maximum amount of loan available is $4,000. These loans are not interest-free. In order to qualify for the Special Opportunity Grant you must meet the government's target group for part-time studies (i.e., you are a sole support parent with children under the age of 11, you are disabled, you are restricted by the university to part-time studies, etc.). The maximum amount of grant assistance available is $1,200 per year (May to April). Applications are available in the Office of the University Registrar (Student Awards).

Special Opportunity Grants and Loans

Students who are unable to study full-time and who have low income may be eligible for this assistance. Students who qualify are assessed grant assistance first; the remaining assessed need is issued as a loan. Students must be Canadian citizens or permanent residents who live in a province or territory that participates in the Canada Student Loans Program. Students must be qualified to enrol in a program leading to a degree, diploma or certificate. Students must enrol in between 20 and 59 of a full-time course load. Students must begin to make interest payments on the loan 30 days after it is cashed. Interest relief may be available in some cases. Applications are available at the Student Awards.

Queen's University Student Loan Funds

Queen' University, its graduates and friends have established a number of loan funds for the assistance of undergraduate and graduate students. Loans are made on the basis of financial need, academic merit, and general integrity. An applicant for a University loan must have obtained a minimum average of 55 percent in the session immediately prior to application. Short term loans of ninety days or less may be granted to students who are temporarily in need of funds and who can produce satisfactory evidence that they will have sufficient money to make payment on or before the due date. A service charge of 2 per cent of the principal amount (minimum $5) is charged at the time the loan is obtained. No other interest or service charges accrue so long as the loan is not allowed to become overdue. General or long term loans can be available for students who require assistance for more than ninety days. Before financial assistance is given, the loan committee must be satisfied that the applicant has applied to all other eligible sources of aid. The interest rate on general loans is the same as the bank rate the University is able to obtain for itself, and the interest is compounded monthly. Students will be advised of the interest rate in effect at the time application is made. Interest rates will be set on 30 September each year and the new rate will apply to all outstanding loans. Repayment of long-term loans must normally be made by 30 September following the date on which the loan was granted. Year by year extensions of the due date may be negotiated between the borrower and the Associate University Registrar (Student Awards) while the borrower continues to be a full time student at Queen's University. Another loan for the next year may be granted if the student applies and justifies the need. Students contemplating an application for university loan assistance should determine their income and expenditures for the session and apply at least two weeks in advance of the actual need. Application for a university loan should be made at the office of the Associate University Registrar (Student Awards), Gordon Hall or applications are available on the Student Awards Office web page.
