Graduate Studies

Pathology and Molecular Medicine Graduate Award  

This monetary award is available to outstanding entry level graduate students. 

Terms of Reference:  The Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine is committed to the recruitment of outstanding PhD and MSc candidates.  To this end, the Department offers a one year monetary award to an eligible graduate student on the recommendation of the Departmental Graduate Studies Committee.  This will be in addition to their stipend as provided by their supervisor and/or external awards. Eligible candidates will have outstanding academic records, evidence of research experience, excellent letters of reference, and either be the recipient of a competitive external graduate award or an outstanding candidate for an external award. The purpose of this award is to attract top-ranked students who would be highly sought after by other academic institutions both nationally and internationally.

The Robert Kisilevsky Fund for Research Education 

This endowed fund supports a bursary program for full-time PhD students in the first year of their program in the Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine.  The bursaries are one-time awards, paid in September, which are provided in addition to any other support received by students from either their supervisors or other sources.  The bursary is not a competitive award and all PhD students will receive one during their first year of full-time studies.  Students joining collaborative programs are eligible to receive the award once they have identified Pathology and Molecular Medicine as their home department.  The value of the bursary may vary on an annual basis depending on the income from the Fund and the number of first year PhD students in the program.  

The Graduate Entrance Tuition Award  

This award is given annually to one incoming graduate student with an average of at least 80% (or equivalent) in each of the last two years.  The value is equivalent to one year's domestic tuition and is deposited directly into the student's tuition account.

Conference Travel Award 

Students are encouraged to submit papers, relating to their work, to appropriate scientific meetings.  Only those students attending meetings to present graduate research performed in the Pathology Department at Queen's will have access to funding to defray costs of travel, etc.    Application must be made prior to attendance at the Conference.  Please retain all expense receipts including boarding passes.
