Funding for MSc and PhD in Pharmacy students

The School of Pharmacy guarantees a minimum amount of financial support, equal to or greater than the University of Waterloo minimum funding amounts, to all of our MSc and PhD in Pharmacy students who:

  • maintain full time registration
  • are in good academic standing in their program
  • are within program time limits
  • do not have alternate funding sources such as graduate scholarships, internships, or international student sponsorship 

Students should use this funding to arrange their fees; any remaining funds are paid to the student, to be used toward their living expenses.
