|Recommendations for Graduate Student Funding
No guarantee of funding to the student by the supervisor, the GSC or the Department is implied in the Department's recommendation for admission to the graduate program. Supervisors and students should develop a clear understanding regarding stipend arrangement. Supervisors should be prepared to commit a minimum amount of funds equivalent to the University of Manitoba Graduate Fellowship per student per year as a student stipend. Supervisors and students are encouraged to make every effort to secure funding from external agencies.
Funding for students can be sought from the following:
The Department of Medical Microbiology currently has a limited number of graduate stipends which it can award to faculty members to support students. Applications for these stipends are made by the supervisor to the GSC using the Student Stipend Application Form. The value of the awards is adjusted from time to time; supervisors may find out the current value from the GSC.
The University of Manitoba Faculty of Graduate Studies has a list of Awards and eligibility criteria for graduate students.
