Funding and Scholarships

Most full-time students are offered financial support in the form of some combination of the following

(a) Teaching assistantship: for a description of the duties and responsibilities of a TA, please click here.
(b) Research assistantship: additional funding typically provided by your thesis supervisor.
(c) Scholarship and bursaries:  A complete list of funding and awards is available through FGS. All eligible students are required to apply (annually) for external scholarships, including NSERC and OGS.

If you are accepted into one of our full-time programs, your offer letter will include information on your minimum level of guaranteed funding.

Student financial services provides detailed information on current tuition fees.  Part-time students are not eligible for financial support.

An important aspect of your graduate experience is the opportunity to present your research at national or international conferences.   All students are encouraged to apply for the CUPE Conference Travel Fund (scroll down).
