Search for more funding opportunities

The Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs Awards Database helps current and future University of Waterloo graduate students to identify funding opportunities. Details on awards, bursaries and other scholarships administered through UWaterloo are found within. Students are advised to check the database often as changes to award information including eligibility criteria, award value, application process, deadlines and the availability of funds can occur at any time.
