At Concordia University, competitive funding packages are offered at the time of admission to most students to allow them to focus on their research and studies. These funding packages may include awards that are generated by the operating funds of Concordia University and/or through the generosity of individual donors.
A sample of awards paid through the operating funds of Concordia University include the following:
- New: 2020-21 Top Concordian Undergraduate Graduate Entrance Scholarships, valued at $10,000.
- Concordia University Doctoral Graduate Fellowships, valued at $14,000 per year for four years.
- Concordia International Tuition Award of Excellence, award value is paying tuition fees at the Quebec rate. Valued at approximately $39,280.

Funding for an increased number of Merit and Concordia Fellowships has been made available for the 2020-21 academic year.
These awards are often topped up by teaching and research assistantships, making the overall funding package financially sufficient to allow students to finish their degree in a timely manner.
Concordia offers “top-up” funding to Indigenous graduate students who have been awarded scholarships. There are 10 doctoral and 20 master’s scholarships annually, each valued at $10,000, with the doctoral scholarship offering $10,000 per year for up to four years. Departments may nominate students upon their acceptance to a graduate program. Only Indigenous students from Indigenous communities and nations from Canada and the U.S. are eligible. Students may not apply directly.
Applicants are automatically considered for all Concordia entrance scholarships through the individual faculty’s graduate admissions office.
