Selection Process The selection committee, whose members are professors in telecommunications at INRS, recommend scholarships for the applicants with the best qualifications according to the selection criteria described in the above section.
Scholarships Accumulation Award holders are a priori ineligible to receive any scholarship support from other granting agencies or from INRS. However, Cyrille Duquet will top up any graduate-level scholarship received from other funding agencies up to, without exceeding in total, 22000 $ per year*.

* If you are a recipient of another grant with an amount say A>0 in CAD, the Wireless Lab will increase INRS’ Cyrille Duquet top-up amount up to 14000 in excess of 8000 per year regardless of A. That is if A<22000, then you will receive a yearly stipend S=A+B+C where B=22000-A and C=max(14.000-max(B-8.000;0);0) are, respectively, the top-up amounts of INRS and the Wireless Lab. Otherwise, S=22000. Please click here to see numerical examples for the top-up amounts and total yearly stipend.
** Should you opt for joining the Wireless Lab, you would need prior to application at PGSO to submit your candidacy to <admission@wirelesslab.ca> to seek support from the Team Leader, prof. Sofiène Affes. Please do so no later than Thursday 3 May 2018.
