Math Domestic Graduate Student Award

Award type: 
Award description: 

The goal of this award is to support domestic graduate students in the Faculty of Mathematics, who are engaged in research-based (thesis) programs. It is also aimed at reducing RA funding requirements from supervisors to encourage greater capacity for domestic graduate students, and at encouraging students and supervisors to work together to ensure timely completion of their programs. Students in a thesis based master’s program must be within the first six terms of their program, or seven terms if in the co-op program.

Value description: 

Doctoral students: $6,000 per year (split over 3 terms) Master's students: $3,000 per year (split over 3 terms)
