Montréal Pride Scholarships
Montréal Pride’s Scholarship Program for 2SLGBTQIA+ Master’s and Ph. D. Students in Research
This program aims to support excellence by providing five scholarships to Master’s and Ph.D. students who self-identify as gender and sexually diverse individuals (2SLGBTQIA+), whose research projects focus on the realities of gender and sexually diverse individuals and their communities. Specifically, Montréal Pride will award up to two Ph.D. scholarships, worth $4,500 each, and three master’s scholarships, worth $3,000 each. These scholarships may be combined with those awarded by Federal and Provincial funding agencies.
The specificity of this scholarship program is its focus on knowledge development by and for communities. Thus, the winners will participate in activities to share the results of their research with the public and the partners of Montréal Pride. We wish that applicants reflect the diversity of our today’s society and we encourage the following groups to submit an application:
- Members of visible minorities, i.e. persons who are members of a minority due to the color of their skin or their cultural affiliation;
- members of ethnic minorities; in the sense of the law, these are persons other than Indigenous people and persons of a visible minority group, and whose first language is neither English nor French;
- persons with disabilities; in the sense of the Act to secure handicapped persons in the exercise of their rights with a view to achieving social, school and workplace integration, a person with a disability is “any person with a deficiency causing a significant and persistent disability, who is liable to encounter barriers in performing everyday activities.”
- Indigenous persons.
If applicable, we encourage you to self-identify with one of the above-mentioned groups when submitting your online application. The information collected on equal access will only be used for the purposes of enforcing the law. It will remain strictly confidential and only be known to the selection committee.
