Students in the Screen Cultures and Curatorial Studies graduate program at Queen’s University receive financial support from the Department of Film and Media. Full-time MA students will receive a minimum funding package of $16,000.00 and PhD students will receive a minimum of $22,000 per year.* This financial support is derived by a combination of internal and external graduate awards and teaching assistantships. Students are encouraged to apply for external funding as well. Please see the list of external funding below.

Note: Queen’s will automatically issue a $5,000 award to incoming MA and $7500 to incoming PhD students who have won federal government tri-council awards. For more information, see the School of Graduate Studies’ information on awards and scholarships.

*Funding for domestic students is guaranteed upon acceptance, covering tuition costs, and offsetting some of the living costs. Funding opportunities for international students are limited and we recommend contacting the Graduate Chair before applying.
