Join a vibrant team of scholars and graduate students

CERC Migration offers a limited number of stipends to full-time MA and PhD students who are applying to study at Ryerson University on a migration and/or migrant integration-related topic. Student recipients of the CERC Migration Graduate Student Stipend will be given a working space at the CERC Migration office, will be expected to participate in CERC Migration’s research training activities and workshops, and will be integrated into a vibrant research team of scholars and graduate students, enjoying a comprehensive scientific and professional development experience.

Funding amount

Master's: Up to $10,000.  Available to first- or second-year MA students at Ryerson

PhD: Up to $25,000 per year, renewable for a total of four years, subject to annual review of the student’s progress. Available to first-year PhD students entering a Ryerson PhD program.

If a student has accepted an external scholarship, such as a SSHRC or CIHR award, they must decline the CERC stipend.  However, CERC Migration may consider adding a supplement ‘top-up’. These will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
