Student Awards

N.B.: The complete eligibility requirements and information regarding the application process for this award are included in the application form.

Eligibility

  • New and returning graduate student members are eligible to apply for CIRMMT student awards to pursue interdisciplinary research projects within the Centre’s mandate.  Post-doctoral members are not eligible for this funding.  
  • REMINDER: To be eligible, students must be enrolled during the full period of the award funding. 
  • PLEASE NOTE that to be considered eligible for CIRMMT funding, students are expected to attend a minimum of 4 out of 6 Distinguished Lectures in the previous year. Students from universities outside Montreal (U. de Sherbrooke and Université Laval) are exempt, but are encouraged to attend when possible. CIRMMT funding applications will include a section where students will be able to indicate which Distinguished Lectures they have attended. Extenuating circumstances will be reviewed.
  • New group and single applicants are eligible for a maximum of $5000 per person.  
  • Renewals: Note that beginning with the 2015-16 academic year, project renewals are no longer funded. Students who have successfully applied before can receive a subsequent student award, but only for new projects, preferably with new team members, and at a reduced funding level of a maximum of $3000 each.
 

Application Process

  • Applications will be reviewed by the CIRMMT Executive Committee in consultation with external advisers as needed. Results will be announced by April 15th.
  • Recipients of Student Awards are required to take part in a workshop at the start of their award, and present at the annual Student Symposium at the end of their award in order to receive their funding.
 

Selection Criteria

  • Quality as well as the interdisciplinarity of the proposal.
  • Relevance of the proposal to CIRMMT's mission.
