  • external funding agencies, including Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research, and others;
  • International Partial Tuition Scholarship, administered by the College of Graduate Studies;
