Registered graduate students can receive funding to present at major scholarly conferences, or artistic exhibitions in a peer-reviewed or juried context. The purpose of this award is to encourage students to disseminate their research, acquire professional and practical experience as well as to enhance Concordia’s profile in the external research community.
Doctoral students can travel anywhere in the world and receive funding of up to $15,000 total when registered in their program (or $1,000 for every term of study in their first five years). In contrast, Master’s students are only eligible for this award once, anytime within the first six terms of their program.
Applications must be received before the conference start date.
This biannual competition (usually in March and September each year) is meant to recognize exceptional research projects based at Concordia, which have been released to the public in the eight months prior to the deadline date. The 1000$ award recognizes the graduate researcher, as well as the importance of their study to the general public.
The School of Graduate Studies offers up to two Concordia Stand-Out Graduate Research Awards each competition; when possible, one will be awarded in the category of “Fine Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences” and the other in “Engineering, Medical Sciences and Natural Sciences”.
Please note that all students must have applied to the Relève étoiles, in order to be eligible to apply for the Stand-Out Graduate Research Award.
