The School of Kinesiology and Health Studies offers guaranteed funding commitments for all full-time, funding eligible graduate students. These commitments are confirmed when graduate students are offered admission into our program.
Our graduate funding packages include funding from a number of sources, including:
SKHS graduate students must meet the following requirements to be eligible for a funding package:
All eligible SKHS graduate students are required to apply for Ontario Graduate Scholarships (OGS). Applications are due March 1 of each year. Applications will be used to nominate students for internal Queen’s Awards and Fellowships.
* Visa Students. Foreign students who are studying in Ontario under a temporary resident visa – student study permit, under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (Canada) are eligible for the allotted visa student awards. There will be a separate competition for visa students.
Scholarship value: $15,000 for one academic year, paid out in 3 equal installments.
The Tri-Council is comprised of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).
Detailed information about applying can be found on each agency’s website.
These prestigious awards provide significant funding for student research at Queen’s.
The University recognizes the success of those who receive Tri-Council awards by offering Tri-Agency Recipient Recognition Awards of $5,000 to incoming Master’s students and $10,000 to incoming PhD students (both one-time payments).
