Scholarships and Awards

The supervisors of graduate students in the Department of Biomedical Engineering guarantee their students financial support for a fixed period of time based upon acceptable performance. Students registered in other departments should check with the department of their supervisor to determine whether there is guaranteed support.

There are numerous scholarships, awards, and stipends available to all graduate students. Students will be considered automatically for some, while they must apply for others, in some cases prior to admission. They can be from international agencies and governments, or ones available to students within a specific department or faculty. Most require an application form, transcripts, letters of reference, and purpose of study. In addition, most have specific deadlines of which the student must be aware. International students should investigate those offered by their government. The right sidebar contains links to a number of useful sites.
