Graduate Funding Packages

Academic Year 2022-2023

Students who are admitted for MASc or PhD study receive the following minimum financial support ‐

  • MASc students: $17,000 plus tuition and fees per year, for up to 2 years
  • PhD students: $18,500 plus tuition and fees per year, for up to 4 years

Packages are made up of Scholarships, Fellowships, and Research Assistantships (RA).

As of September 2018, Teaching Assistant positions (TAships) are offered separately from the minimum funding package. This means:

  • Funding totals will remain the same as the previous year, and
  • TAships will be an opportunity for students to supplement their funding. Updated details on the application process and value are posted each semester.
