GLSE Leave of Absence Stipendiary Fund
Faculty of Medicine

For research-stream graduate students in the Faculty of Medicine, the Leave of Absence Stipendiary Fund is available for an approved Leave of Absence (LOA) due to health issues (i.e. physical) and/or mental health challenges which temporarily impair a student’s functioning during his/her graduate studies. Funding is available up to $5,000 per student for one term on a one-time only basis.  Ideally, students must submit an application package (as described below) to the Office of Graduate and Life Sciences Education in the Faculty of Medicine (MSB 2360) before the deadline below and prior to the start of their LOA.  Students who remain registered during the requested LOA will not receive LOA Stipendiary Funding. 

For students taking a LOA due to parental leave, the School of Graduate Studies provides funding through the SGS Parental Grant.  Please click here for more information.
