The Graduate Students’ Association established the Association Research & Publication Bursary to acknowledge the financial challenges students face in funding their research. It is essential to note that this bursary is not intended to replace or supplement funding provided in the letter of offer or for conference travel. Instead, it aims to assist with ancillary costs associated with graduate student’s research, such as expendable research equipment, printing costs, publication fees, and more—costs that may not reasonably be covered by the student's supervisor. We are committed to supporting your academic endeavours and ensuring that financial constraints do not hinder your research contributions.

Incomplete applications will automatically be rejected.
