The application deadline for Environment programs has been extended for all applicants. Waterloo is committed to offering access to its world-class programs to all graduate students from around the world.
Please note that we are always accepting applications for the next available term and are committed to enrolling top quality students at the University of Waterloo.
Your university education is one of the most important investments you'll make in your lifetime. A variety of scholarships, assistantships, and other forms of financial aid are available for graduate students in the Faculty of Environment.
Waterloo is proud to offer nationally competitive funding packages to the majority of incoming graduate students. Depending on the academic record, incoming master's students are eligible for funding packages between $12,000-15,000 per year. Minimum funding for doctoral students in good academic standing is $22,293 per year. This commitment applies to the first four years of full-time enrolment in a doctoral program.
The amount of graduate funding offered to individual students depends on the particular graduate program and, most importantly, on the applicant’s overall academic merit, as evidenced by the application support documents (transcripts, letters of reference, applicant statement).
Students entering a graduate program with an external award from either the Tri-Council or the Ontario Graduate Scholarship are also offered the $10,000 UWaterloo President’s Graduate Scholarship.
Teaching assistantships (TA)
Graduate students may be assigned one or more teaching assistantship (TA) tasks each year. Each TA task involves 10 hours per week for one term. Please refer to compensation rates (PDF) on Finance's website.
We encourage you to download the Faculty of Environment's report: A Learning Environment: Student Perspectives on Teaching and Learning (PDF).
