New PhD funding initiative

The Faculty of Applied Health Sciences commits to fully funded PhD positions ($90,000 over four years) for new domestic students.

Applied Health Sciences (AHS) is committed to improving the quality of life for individuals and communities through innovative education and research activities. We are leaders in the development of strategies that prevent disease and injury, protect and promote healthy living, optimize physical ability, and improve well-being across the life course.

AHS is a rapidly growing Faculty offering 10 master’s and doctoral programs with a faculty complement of 93 professors, and the second-highest level of per-capita research funding at the University of Waterloo.

To complement our research and academic growth, we've committed to providing fully funded four-year PhD positions for new domestic students.
