Funding for domestic graduate students

The Faculty of Mathematics and the University of Waterloo’s Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs have developed a $1.5 million funding initiative for full-time domestic graduate students.

Funding opportunities available for full-time domestic students include:

  • if you are a new doctoral student with an average of at least 80%, then you will be considered for a Mathematics Domestic Doctoral Scholarship (MDDS) worth at least $5,000 per year for up to 2 to 4 years.
  • if you are a new research Master’s student with average of at least 80% and do not hold a other major scholarship, then you are eligible for the $5,000 Mathematics Domestic Masters Scholarship (MDMS).

Contact the graduate coordinator in your department/school for more information:
