Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research

Apply for Grants/Scholarships

Applying for grants, scholarships, or fellowships is a vital endeavour for all faculty and graduate students to fund research or career goals.

To aid in this process, the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research divides such opportunities into three general categories:

  • funding from Saint Mary's University, available only to current SMU faculty or SMU graduate students ("internal funding");
  • funding from Canadian institutions, available to Canadian faculty or graduate students ("external funding");
  • funding from global institutions, available to non-Canadian faculty or graduate students ("external funding").

We invite all Faculty to click here, and Graduate Students to click here, for a list of forms and opportunities.

The documents listed here may assist in general tips and advice as you seek internal or external funding for your research or career goals.
