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. 

External Funding
Tri-Agency CGSM Master’s Award and CGSD Doctoral

External funding is available via the Tri-Agency institutions at both the Master’s and Doctoral level: Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, and Ontario Graduate Scholarships (CIHR / NSERC / SSHRC).

Exclusive to Queen’s University:
Tri-Agency Recipient Recognition Award for Canada Graduate Scholarship – Doctoral (CGS-D) Recipients

Queen’s University invests in Canada’s most talented graduate students with the Tri-Agency Recipient Recognition Award for Canada Graduate Scholarship – Doctoral (CGS-D) Recipients.

The Tri-Agency Recipient Recognition Award is valued at $10,000 for doctoral students entering their first year of study. All eligible applicants to the CGS-D who identify Queen's as their destination of choice (host institution) are automatically considered for the Tri-Agency Recipient Recognition Award. Only eligible CGS-D holders will receive the Tri-Agency Recipient Recognition Award.

Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS)
Other external funding includes the Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS). All graduate students are eligible to hold an Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS) no matter where they are living at the time of application. The Department of Psychology requires eligible students to apply for the OGS funding award during each year of their degree in order to also be eligible for nomination for Queen’s internal fellowships and scholarships.

Quebec Opportunities (external)
Residents of Quebec should apply for Quebec Government Scholarships, as these are tenable outside of Quebec.
