Grants, Bursaries & Emergency Funding

This grant is established to encourage graduate students and faculty to work collectively, across departments, to facilitate student mental health and well-being by developing innovative and sustainable initiatives to improve the overall graduate student life experience in the Faculty of Medicine.

For research-stream graduate students in the Faculty of Medicine, the Leave of Absence Stipendiary Fund is available for an approved Leave of Absence (LOA) due to health issues (i.e. physical) and/or mental health challenges which temporarily impair a student’s functioning during his/her graduate studies.

The SGS Parental Grant program, aims to provide financial support to doctoral students within the funded cohort by helping to offset the loss of funding as a result of taking an approved parental leave of absence.
With an aim to foster holistic health and wellness of graduate students, the SGS Summer Gym Bursary offers students a reimbursement for up to 100% of their campus summer athletic membership or program fees.
