Information and opportunities

The Faculty of Graduate Studies website provides information about internal and external scholarships, fellowships, bursaries, and other funding opportunities. Often it is only master’s thesis and doctoral students who are eligible to apply.

Prospective and current master’s thesis and doctoral students should consider applying to one of the three national granting agencies or Research Nova Scotia (formerly The Nova Scotia Health Research Foundation) for funding.

The school nominates entering students for the Killam and Nova Scotia Graduate Scholarship.

Students from culturally or linguistically diverse backgrounds, particularly those of African Canadian or Aboriginal descent, are eligible for some scholarships and bursaries.

Part-time teaching assistantships are sometimes available. Application details will be posted on bulletin boards throughout the school.

Research assistantships are sometimes available. Talk to individual professors to learn more these opportunities.

Dalhousie University Faculty of Graduate Studies Scholarships are awarded to master’s students in the second year, based on academic performance.

Additional information about funding opportunities can be found in the SCSD student handbook, section 6.0.
