Financial Support

All MSc and PhD graduate students are paid a competitive stipend designed to cover both living expenses and tuition costs (without the need for non-University work or student loans). These funds are derived from a variety of sources including the Western Graduate Research Scholarship, Teaching Assistantships, and Research Assistantships.

Increased stipends are paid to major scholarship holders, for example (NSERC PGS-D/M, CGS-D/M, OGS/OGSST). If you will hold such a scholarship, please contact the Department for a detailed salary offer.
