Graduate Studies

Tuition, Fees and Scholarships

We want you to succeed in your graduate studies at McMaster. 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 $17,500. 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.
