Queen's University and the Faculty of Law are committed to making graduate studies accessible and affordable.
Tuition and ancillary fees (which do not include accommodation and living expenses) for domestic and international students are posted on the School of Graduate Studies website. Most of our domestic LL.M. students receive merit-based grants that more than cover their tuition and ancillary fees. Most of our international LL.M. students receive merit-based grants that almost cover their tuition and ancillary fees. Some limited needs-based bursary funds are also available from the University. We will endeavour to provide doctoral students who do not obtain external funding financial resources equivalent to tuition plus $15,000 per year.
Applicants are encouraged to make every effort to obtain assistance from external funding sources. Queen's School of Graduate Studies requires that all who are eligible apply for the Ontario Graduate Scholarship program as a condition to being considered for Queen's University awards. For additional information on Fees and Financial Aid please see the School of Graduate Studies website at:http://www.queensu.ca/sgs/forstudents/prospectivestudents/tuition.html (Fees etc) or http://www.queensu.ca/sgs/forstudents/prospectivestudents/funding.html (for funding)
The Commonwealth Scholarship program is for Commonwealth citizens from outside Canada, and we have had international students attend on scholarships that they have arranged from such sources as the World Bank and Rotary International.
The Faculty of Law and Queen's University are committed to increasing the number of First Nations and visible minority graduate students and scholars in Canada. There is some special funding support for First Nations and Canadian visible minority candidates who intend to pursue a law teaching career in Canada. Eligible candidates who wish to be considered for these awards may apply by self-identifying on the online application form and by notifying the Coordinator of Graduate Studies at the time of application.
Established in memory of Bruce C. McDonald (Law '63) by friends, colleagues, and co-workers, and awarded annually to support an incoming graduate student in the LL.M. program.
Information about the costs of studying Law at Queen's and living in Kingston is available from the Graduate section of the Student Awards website.
