New graduate funding initiative announced for 2018

Friday, January 26, 2018

A new opportunity is now extended to incoming 2018-2019 domestic, full-time, thesis-based master’s and doctoral students based on academic excellence. Funding is now available for 30 incoming students in the form of a $10,000 Applied Health Sciences graduate scholarship.

This new initiative is jointly funded by the Dean of the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences and University of Waterloo Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs and exceeds the usual guaranteed funding rate per term by ~$2,500.

Successful recipients are not expected to hold Teaching or Research Assistantships in the term for which the scholarship is applied and only one scholarship per student, per year will be offered.

Graduate students who are successful in receiving external Tri-Council or Ontario Graduate Scholarship funding will instead receive the University of Waterloo President’s Graduate Scholarship of $10,000 per year on top of their external award.

This new AHS graduate scholarship may be applied to Fall 2018, Winter 2019, or Spring 2019 terms.
