Grants & scholarships
Supporting your research
Students in the thesis stream can apply for research grants from:
- Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR)
- Nova Scotia Health Research Foundation (NSHRF)
- Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC)
- Government of Nova Scotia
These scholarships are prestigious and competitive. We have a good record of securing student funding from government sources.
Students in the thesis stream can also get a research assistantship, which is a scholarship that is funded through research grants but secured by a faculty member. The student would then work on research topic related to the research grant. These scholarships are subject to the availability of research grant funding.
