JMSB and Concordia University provide a funding to all newly admitted PhD candidates for a period of five years. The total value of this funding exceeds $115,000 for the Canadian students ($150,000 for the international students), detailed as follows. All fundings are conditional to good academic standing, which includes being compliant with the standard timeline.
Tuition fee waiver
Any admitted candidate benefits from a total fee waiver (corresponding to approximatively $8,000 for Canadian candidates and to approximatively $46,000 for international students, subject to annual regulatory changes) during their first three years.
Financial support for conferences and doctoral consortium
Grants are available for doctoral students during their first five years of the PhD program, to assist them with conference travel (maximum of $1,200 per fiscal year) or to attend a doctoral consortium (500$ once), in addition to a possibility to apply for funding from the School of Graduate Studies (between $250-$1,000 per term for 5 years).
Doctoral students receive a total of $100,000 guaranteed funding for the five first years, corresponding to approximatively $20,000 per year. This amount includes from a variety of sources (scholarships, donors grants, etc.) and teaching activities (100 hours of teaching assistantships per year during the first three years, teaching one course and 50 hours teaching assistantships per year during years four and five). This funding covers the estimated annual expenses for a student living in Montreal.
Doctoral students are encouraged to apply to competitive external grants such as SSHRC, CHIR, NSERC, etc. and to competitive internal awards (calls issued by John Molson School of Business, Concordia University, School of Graduate Studies, etc.).
Doctoral students could also receive additional funding for research assistantships or additional teaching tasks.
Non Accumulation Rule
Students will receive partial guaranteed funding in certain cases that include but are not limited to:
Students who receive additional funding (internal or external awards, salaries, etc.)
Students who transfer course credits from a previous PhD program.
Students who receive full or partial funding from their country of origin for their studies.
Students commit to declare to the PhD Office all their additional sources of funding, whether obtained at Concordia University or elsewhere.
Many graduate students receive support in the form of a stipend paid by a faculty member holding a research grant. If you are interested in a Research Assistantship position please speak to professors in your department.
