In addition to the information below, students are urged to consult the School of Graduate Studies to keep up-to-date with all funding initiatives sponsored through their offices.
At admission time, applicants to the Humanities PhD program are automatically considered for Concordia recruitment fellowships (there is no separate application process), and international students are also considered for an International Tuition Fee Remission Award.
A variety of funding opportunities are available to graduate students at Concordia. Students are urged to consult the School of Graduate Studies (SGS) [https://www.concordia.ca/students/financial-support/graduate-funding.html] to keep up-to-date with all funding initiatives from internal (Concordia University and its donors) and external (government and industry) sources.
Depending on their areas of research, current students can also apply for competitive Concordia graduate fellowships and awards that are area or theme-specific, for example: the Faculty of Arts and Science Fellowship in Ethnic Studies and Social Diversity; Scholarships and bursaries offered by the School of Canadian Irish Studies; The Montefiore graduate fellowship offered by the Azrieli Institute of Israel Studies ; Fellowships offered by the Concordia Institute for Canadian Jewish Studies, and others listed in the SGS Awards Directory.
As well, the Graduate Student Association (GSA) normally has a limited amount of student funding available.
Humanities PhD students find opportunities to teach at Concordia through the home departments of their supervisors, and may also be eligible to teach writing and language courses. Students are strongly encouraged to take the free Graduate Seminar in University Teaching, offered by Concordia’s Centre for Teaching and Learning several times per term, since some departments demand it as a prerequisite for teaching.
Students are also strongly advised to discuss opportunities for Research Assistantship with their supervisors.
Humanities PhD Program Support
The Humanities Program has a very limited amount of funds to support student travel and only one travel grant per year will be considered. However, A&S Humanities students are encouraged to apply to the Faculty of Arts & Science for funding and the Humanities program may then be able to add a small “top-up” amount to the funding being offered through A&S. Students who are applying for funding from both A&S and Humanities need to complete the application form for both sources and submit both applications to Sharon Fitch, S-LB 689.01. Students who are applying for support from the Humanities program only need to complete the program form. Applications must be submitted prior to attending the conference.To receive a reimbursement from the Humanities program and the Faculty of Arts & Science (if applicable), students need to provide original copies of receipts (including boarding passes) totalling the amount of the reimbursement to Sharon Fitch, S-LB 689.01. The receipts must be submitted within 25 days of return from the conference. An expense report will be prepared and submitted on behalf of the student.
