Students should consider applying for funding at the time of their application to the MD/PhD Program. Potential sources of support at the time of admission may be:
- External awards such as Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS) valued at $15,000, the CIHR MSc award ($17,500) or the Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship ($50,000). Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) no longer funds MD/PhD students.
- Internal scholarships (e.g. Douglas C. Russell Memorial Scholarship valued at $13,000 or OGSSTs valued at $15,000).
Students can contact the graduate program at the university they are presently attending, or can contact the MD/PhD program for advice on scholarships.
Students are funded during their time in the Ph.D. program curriculum at the minimum rate of $21,700 per year.
