Student Funding

Financial Assistance


ARTC does not support students in terms of tuition, student fees, or scholarship.  Prospective students applying to the program are encouraged to apply for external funding. Information on external funding may be found at each university's School/Faculty of Graduate Studies. (See links on the right.) Students at the MUN site are required by the Office of Research and Graduate Studies in the Faculty of Medicine to have minimum funding. Consult their website for details.

When students participate in their research residency, it is anticipated they will receive a monthly stipend, although this is a matter for individual organizations and as such cannot be guaranteed. They may also apply for funding through other agencies such as the Mitacs Accelerate internship program - http://www.mitacsaccelerate.ca/internship.

Student Employment and Funding


In order to maintain full-time student status, students are expected to devote themselves substantially to their studies. Paid employment outside of the Program is permitted only to a maximum of 16 hours per week. Students who accept paid employment beyond this limit will be reduced to part-time status. If the student receives funding, the funding organization may have more restrictive limits on employment.
