From our beginning in 1873, Mount Saint Vincent University has been committed to nurturing socially responsible global citizens, at home and abroad. The Mount is located just minutes from downtown Halifax, Nova Scotia and is recognized for its small class sizes and personalized approach to learning. A diverse mix of 4,000 women and men from across Canada and more than 50 countries take advantage of the Mount’s programs and unique sense of community through on-campus classes and distance learning opportunities.

Mount Saint Vincent University offers several scholarships and bursaries to new and continuing graduate students. Students may be automatically considered for some awards, but may need to submit an application for others.

Scholarships available to new students

Scholarships are available to continuing students

Individual departments and programs may offer graduate students research assistantships, teaching assistantships, and other academic employment. Graduate students should ask their academic advisors, graduate program coordinators, or program assistants if this type of academic employment is available.

Full-time graduate students who are accepted to a thesis-based program at the Mount no later than May 15th of each year will automatically be considered for our entrance scholarships:


Both domestic and international students in thesis-based and course-based programs are eligible to receive some of our many internal scholarships.

To be eligible to receive most internal scholarships, graduate students must be enrolled full-time, though some are offered to both full-time and part-time students. Only the Adah Ruth Spencer Memorial Scholarship in Graduate Education is available exclusively to part-time graduate students.
