Graduate Studies


We provide funding to our graduate students so they can devote their time and energy to the successful completion of their studies. Doctoral students who meet the criteria under Section 4 in the Graduate Calendar, receive financial support which meets or exceeds an annual minimum value equal to full-time tuition plus $13,500. As well, the majority of Masters students in research-degree programs receive substantial funding packages.

Change in status: If your status as a student changes – you graduate, take a leave of absence, withdraw from the program – your eligibility for bursaries, academic grants, travel awards, and scholarships may be affected.

$ = Up to $2,500
$$ = $2501 to $10,000
$$$ = $10,001 to $20,000
$$$$ = $20,000 and higher

Visit the Graduate Calendar for general regulations governing scholarships, bursaries and other awards.
