GRADUATE STUDIES

Funding and Financial Support: External Awards

How Will I Be Funded?

Queen’s University mandates a minimum guarantee of funding for full-time doctoral students in good standing of $18,000 per academic years 1 through 4.  Psychology also makes every effort to provide similar support for full-time Master’s students in years 1 and 2 (some conditions may apply).  Funding support varies according to the number of students who hold external and internal funding awards and scholarships so we encourage all applicants to apply for all external fellowships for which they are eligible.
