Funding and awards
We are committed to attracting and rewarding outstanding students with competitive funding. All of our research-based graduate students are fully funded. Exceptional scholarship packages are available.
Top students often bring major scholarships with them. If you hold a tri-council (NSERC/SSHRD/CIHR) or provincial (OGS) scholarship, or if you are awarded one while studying at the University of Waterloo, you will receive the President's Graduate scholarship. We also offer excellent fellowships to outstanding international students.
