2014-2015 Richard H. Tomlinson Doctoral Fellowships in Canada

McGill University is offering doctoral fellowships for new graduate students. The value of Tomlinson Doctoral Fellowships is $35,000 per annum, renewable twice (if eligibility is maintained). Fellows who are in receipt of an external agency fellowship of $35,000 or more will be entitled to retain their Tomlinson Doctoral Fellowship title; however, the Tomlinson Doctoral Fellowship will have no monetary value. Students currently enrolled at McGill, or whose latest degree was completed or in progress at McGill, are therefore ineligible. Applicants must submit their application and supporting documents to the Department/Unit/School where they intend to study.
