In most cases, total payment will be $30,000 to $35,000 per year.   For more details discuss with your potential supervisor. 

Students who have other major scholarships are encouraged to apply.  They will receive total payment similar to that outlined above, as well as all the other benefits of the IACPES program.

In addition, travel expenses incurred for requirements of the IACPES program will be reimbursed; including travel and accommodation costs during the mandatory six month exchange program (PhD students). 

Stipends from CREATE IACPES are limited to a lifetime maximum of four years full-time equivalent for a PhD student and two years full-time equivalent for MSc students.  The stipend for a postdoctoral fellow is limited to 2 years support.
