At Queen’s University, all awards (scholarships, fellowships, prizes, QGA, etc.) administered by or through the School of Graduate Studies, are paid through direct deposit to the award holder’s bank account of record.
The bank account of record must be held at a valid Canadian bank. The bank account of record will receive award payments for any award you receive, for the duration of your enrolment as a graduate student. This direct deposit method is only for those internal and external awards, fellowships, scholarships, Queen’s Graduate Award (QGA), etc. administered by the School of Graduate Studies.
There is a separate process through your department to make arrangements for Teaching Assistantships (TAs) and Research Assistantships (RAs) to be deposited into your bank account.
International Tuition Awards (ITA) are not deposited to your bank account; they are paid directly to your fees account, as a portion of your tuition assessment.
* Please refer to your SGS award letter to find out which form you are required to submit.
