SFU Bioinformatics and NSERC-CREATE Scholarships

Students who have been accepted at either SFU for study in Bioinformatics through the Faculty of Science can additionally apply for funding through our NSERC-CREATE grant. In addition to providing an increased stipend, the scholarship involves a three month internship. Students apply for the internship with their faculty sponsor.

Degrees available:

  • MSc
  • PhD

Campus: Burnaby

Please consult the relevant Faculty of Science department associated with your faculty sponsor for admission requirements.


In order to be accepted into the program, you must also be accepted into an affiliated graduate studies program at Simon Fraser University. Most students will apply to the Bioinformatics program only after identifying a faculty sponsor at SFU in whose lab they will conduct their thesis research.

Note: International students may pay the same graduate fees as domestic students, depending on the program chosen. Please consult the program's website for further clarification.
