Scholarships, Awards & Financial Support

Scholarships & Awards

Graduate students are encouraged to apply for both internal and external funding through scholarships and awards. While most funding from the department comes in the form of research and teaching assistantships, the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research offer numerous scholarships and awards for graduate students.

Financial Support

Financial assistance is available through the department in the form of a limited number of graduate assistantships for students in thesis-based degrees (MSc and PhD). These typically include teaching and research assistantships, but some applicants may also qualify for tuition scholarships. All applicants are automatically considered for these awards during the review of their application.
