Upon acceptance, each student receives a letter stating the funding available through the University of Waterloo for their studies. This funding includes teaching assistantships, travel money for the Keith and Win Shantz International Research Scholarship as well as other scholarships. A benefit of our smaller size is that we offer one of the most generous funding packages in the country. In 2017, the funding offered for five consecutive terms (full-time study) was approximately $34,000.
Students pay fees for all five terms of the program, so we encourage a careful review of funding while in the acceptance process. Other sources of funding are available such as Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP), Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) scholarships and Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS) Program. It is the student's responsibility to learn the application details and procedures.
More information about funding is available at Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
