Graduate Student Receiving Award

The Graduate Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences offers all Full-time degree students financial support in the form of stipends. Students cannot be self-funded. This support may be provided through several resources including departmental funds, bursaries, supervisors’ grants, and scholarships. Graduate student stipends are paid as T4A income when the student starts the program.

International graduate students in the department of pharmaceutical sciences make up a vibrant part of the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy Community. We anticipate a limited number of funded spaces for international applicants in 2024-2025 (1-2 spaces maximum). Please stay connected with our department via our website or on social media.
