Full-time Graduate Students without a major award or scholarship are supported by a Graduate Research Studentships (GRS), Graduate Teaching Assistantships (GTA), and the Science Graduate Award (SGA).

Beginning May 1, 2020 the minimum departmental funding for students not holding other funding is $24,606 per year during their program time limits.

International Doctoral students can also receive the International Doctoral Student Award (IDSA) in addition to the departmental funding. International Masters students may be eligible for the International Master’s Award of Excellence (IMAE). Refer to International student funding on the Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs website. Please be aware that students receiving a NSERC or CIHR Vanier Scholarship are no longer eligible for the IDSA.

All personal information (banking information, tax forms, etc.) can be added via Quest. Once you are hired (as a Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA), or a marker), you will receive an email from Workday (the Human Resource system) regarding the information required.
