Million Dollar PhD

Make more than minimum wage during graduate school in Canada

Most students make less than minimum wage in graduate school, and their debt takes a decade to pay off.

Throughout my years in grad school, I went from earning less than minimum wage to being awarded over a million dollars from 30 scholarships and grants. This funding made it possible to support four other graduate students, hire a dozen research assistants, and present my research at conferences across the world.

Million Dollar PhD aims to be the “missing manual” for graduate funding, focusing on research-based Master’s and PhD programs in Canada.
