January 22, 2019

University du Québec à Montréal has announced that it has reshaped its graduate bursary system and launched a new universal doctoral support scholarship for UQAM students. A UQAM release states that the university will infuse an additional $1M annually starting in the 2019-20 school year, plus an additional $1.5M starting in 2020-21. No application will be required for students to receive the award, with the exception of those who began their studies before September 1, 2018, as the university will check their eligibility on a quarterly basis. UQAM adds that it will also implement a new Master’s scholarship program in Fall 2019. UQAM (QC)
