Student Support: Scholarships
Normally there must be a scholarship in place for a student to be accepted.
The best are scholarships from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), provincial or foreign governments, or some other external body (e.g. Commonwealth or World Bank). Dalhousie awards Killam Scholarships to students with the very finest records.
The Biology Department can provide "Dalhousie Scholarships" to some graduate students, but a contribution from the Supervisor's research grant is also required. Minimum rates for Dalhousie Scholarships for 2002-2003 are: $15,000 for Canadian students and $18,000 for foreign students.
