Budget 2024 is investing $3.5 billion in strategic research infrastructure and federal research support to ensure Canada’s researchers can reach their potential, strengthen Canada’s fundamental research capacity, and develop a new generation of talent.


These investments include:

  • $1.8 billion over five years, starting in 2024-25 to SSHRC, NSERC, and CIHR.

  • $825 million over five years, starting in 2024-25 to increase the annual value of master’s, doctoral, and post-doctoral fellowships. This will also increase the number of research scholarships and fellowships provided, building to approximately 1,720 more graduate students or fellows benefiting each year.

Support Our Science is a grassroots organization with a clear mandate: improve pay for graduate students and postdoctoral scholars in Canada. This includes all researchers, from science and engineering to social sciences and humanities.

Currently, Support Our Science is focusing on advocating for scholarships, fellowships, and research grants at the federal level but recognizes the importance of all jurisdictions in this issue.
