After introducing a scholarship in 2016 enabling international PhD students to pay the same tuition and fees for their program as PhD students from Quebec, the Universitè du Quebec a Montréal has seen a marked growth in enrolment. In particular, UQAM’s Faculties of Arts, Communication, Political Science and Law, and Management Sciences have seen the greatest growth. The reduced fees began in UQAM’s Faculty of Science as an enrolment-boosting initiative, according to UQAM adjoint au vice-recteur à la Vie académique Antoine Goutier. Goutier explained that for the program to reach its full potential, professors would need to be more aware of the scholarship and able to discuss it with potential recruits at conferences and events abroad.
