Postdoctoral funding is handled by the university's academic departments - candidates should therefore inquire about financial support accordingly. The Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies Office??is your best resource?for more information.
Postdocs do not have access to government and McGill need-based aid as these programs are limited to undergraduates and graduates pursuing university degrees. The following services at the Scholarships & Student Aid Office are, however, readily?available to postdocs:
- Frugal Scholar Money Management Program - although geared towards undergraduate and graduate students, our Frugal Scholar Toolkit and Guide can help you with financial planning while at McGill.
- Budget and Debt Management workshops - occurring intermittently throughout the academic year, our joint PGSS events (often tailored to students with dependents) may be of specific interest.
- One-on-one student debt advice - postdocs with student loan debt from prior degrees may wish to seek guidance from our staff about repayment options offered by certain government aid agencies.
Please note: students who would like information on how to opt out of certain fees should consult McGill's Student Accounts website (search engine >"opt out").
