Financial Support
 Psychology faculty and students have been extremely successful in attracting research funding from national granting agencies.  This support is supplemented by generous funding from the province of Manitoba, and from the University of Manitoba itself.  Thus, both through research funding as well as via work as teaching assistants, the majority of our graduate students receive significant funding.
Competitions for various fellowships are held throughout the academic year.  Departmental deadlines for awards change annually.  Deadlines, as they are determined, are posted in the department and on the web.  The following awards are available to both MA and PhD program students.
