For those who have reached tentative agreement to do graduate research under Dr. Campana, application should be made to the Biology Dept. of Dalhousie University. Since Dr. Campana is an Adjunct Professor there, his name should be listed as the prospective supervisor on the application.
The Biology Dept. requires that all graduate students receive a yearly stipend of $15,000 ($18,000 for foreign students), either from scholarship or the supervisor. This covers their tuition fees ($7000/year; $13,000 per year for foreign students), plus it gives them a modest living allowance. Self-funding is not permitted by Dalhousie, and we receive too many applications to consider taking on students without full scholarship support. NSERC is the primary source of scholarships for Canadian students with an A average. However, there are sometimes smaller scholarships available to specific groups of students (such as through employers). Some of these are listed on the Dalhousie Faculty of Graduate Studies web site. Others can be found through your undergraduate university. Foreign students generally find their best scholarship opportunities at the Canadian embassy, through their own country's government, or through the European Union (for European students). In general, Dalhousie does not offer scholarships to students other than those who already have NSERC support.
