At Concordia University, competitive funding packages are offered at the time of admission, allowing students to focus on their research and studies. These funding packages may include awards that are generated by the operating funds of Concordia University and/or through the generosity of individual donors.

A sample of awards paid through the operating funds of Concordia University include the following:

  • Out of Province Award, which reduces tuition for out of province (Quebec) students to the Quebec rate. Valued at approximately $8,878.
  • Concordia University Doctoral Graduate Fellowships, valued at $14,000 per year for four years.
  • Concordia International Tuition Award of Excellence, which reduces tuition to the Quebec rate. Valued at approximately $44,893.
  • Concordia Merit Scholarship, valued at $10,000.

These awards are often topped up with teaching and research assistantships, making the overall funding package financially sufficient and allowing students to finish their degree in a timely manner.

Students wishing to benefit from these awards are encouraged to apply early for admission; there is no separate application process for graduate fellowships.

Indigenous Graduate Scholarships

Concordia offers “top-up” funding to Indigenous graduate students who have been awarded scholarships. There are 10 doctoral and 20 master’s scholarships annually, each valued at $10,000, with the doctoral scholarship offering $10,000 per year for up to four years. Departments may nominate students upon their acceptance to a graduate program. Only Indigenous students from Indigenous communities and nations from Canada and the U.S. are eligible. Students may not apply directly. 

Applicants are automatically considered for all Concordia entrance scholarships through the individual faculty’s graduate admissions office.
