Graduate students are a vital part of Brock’s vision for research success as an institution focused on a transdisciplinary approach to build knowledge, and lead discovery and innovation.

Each year, Canada’s national and provincial funding agencies award hundreds of scholarships to our graduate students as recognition of excellence in research and scholarship. As well, generous donors fund internal graduate scholarships and awards to support outstanding graduate students. It all adds up — this year, graduate student research funding and awards totalled approximately $2.7 million.

Graduate student researchers and scholars have unique talents, knowledge and skills. Brock needs to continue to attract such students to keep building upon our diverse community of researchers from which a collaboration of ideas cross disciplines and drive productive research.
