Additional Financial Aid Information

CANADIAN CITIZENS OR PERMANENT RESIDENTS - Graduate and undergraduate students attending Concordia University who are permanent residents or Canadian citizens may be eligible for government aid from their respective provinces. For further information please refer to http://www.concordia.ca/offices/faao.html
AMERICAN STUDENTS - Students coming to a Canadian university from the United States may apply for a Higher Education Loan Plan (Stafford Loan, Alternative Loans, Federal Parents PLUS Loans, Federal Graduate PLUS Loans, Plus) through their hometown bank. These forms must be sent to Concordia University for approval. Due to the limited amount of funds available, it is essential that students apply as early as possible. Students must complete the Free Financial Aid Form (FAFSA) which is available from the Financial Aid and Awards Office or online at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/. The original Student Aid Report (SAR), which is the result of a needs test, must be submitted [along with the loan application(s)] to the Financial Aid and Awards Office for approval. See http://www.finaid.org for further information.
STUDENTS FROM OTHER COUNTRIES - The scholarships, bursaries, and loans offered through Concordia University and external agencies are generally not available to students from other countries. Students on a student visa who require financial aid should, therefore, contact their home country's embassy and department of education. The Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) offers training assistance to most developing countries with which Canada has a co-operative agreement; however, a student must be nominated by his/her own government. For further information contact:
The Scholarship Committee,Human Resources Directorate,
Canadian International Development Agency,
200 Promenade du Portage Hull, Quebec,
K1A 0G4 Canada
Students should try to obtain adequate finances before coming to Canada. If a student does not intend to return home during the summer, living expenses for four (4) additional months should also be taken into account.

1) Canadians residing outside Quebec pay annual Tuition & Fees of about $5,884 CND at the undergraduate level and $3,675 at the master's level more than the Quebec Residents (as indicated above). At the Ph.D. level there are no differential fees between Canadians from out of province and Quebec.
2) Room and board is an off-campus estimate.
3) Student Heal Plan is included in Tuition & Fees. Students who have already a Student Health Plan can opt out.
4) "Other expenses" are subject to personal needs.

Financial Aid Information

Required financial aid forms

Institution's Own Application Form, Governmental Forms (see below)

Additional Financial Aid Information

Applicants to the M.A.Sc., M.Comp.Sc. and Ph.D. in the Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science may request from $8,000 - $18,000 Cdn assistance on the Admission Application Form at the time of application.
CANADIAN CITIZENS OR PERMANENT RESIDENTS - Graduate and undergraduate students attending Concordia University who are permanent residents or Canadian citizens may be eligible for government aid from their respective provinces. For further information please refer to http://www.concordia.ca/offices/faao.html
AMERICAN STUDENTS - Students coming to a Canadian university from the United States may apply for a Higher Education Loan Plan (Stafford Loan, Alternative Loans, Federal Parents PLUS Loans, Federal Graduate PLUS Loans, Plus) through their hometown bank. These forms must be sent to Concordia University for approval. Due to the limited amount of funds available, it is essential that students apply as early as possible. Students must complete the Free Financial Aid Form (FAFSA) which is available from the Financial Aid and Awards Office or online at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/. The original Student Aid Report (SAR), which is the result of a needs test, must be submitted [along with the loan application(s)] to the Financial Aid and Awards Office for approval. Please see http://www.concordia.ca/offices/faao.html.
STUDENTS FROM OTHER COUNTRIES - The scholarships, bursaries, and loans offered through Concordia University and external agencies are generally not available to students from other countries. Students on a student visa who require financial aid should, therefore, contact their home country's embassy and department of education. The Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) offers training assistance to most developing countries with which Canada has a co-operative agreement; however, a student must be nominated by his/her own government. For further information contact:
The Scholarship Committee,Human Resources Directorate,
Canadian International Development Agency,
200 Promenade du Portage Hull, Quebec,
K1A 0G4 Canada
Students should try to obtain adequate finances before coming to Canada. If a student does not intend to return home during the summer, living expenses for four (4) additional months should also be taken into account.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.
