Graduate Student

Telfer graduate students are a vital part of our research success story. Since the creation of research-based master’s programs in 2006–2007 and the doctoral program in 2016–2017, our graduate students have had remarkable success in securing research scholarships and awards. We prepare graduate students to become the next generation of thought leaders. They will build the knowledge-based society that a better Canada needs to thrive.
