PhD financial assistance

Guaranteed funding

All three universities in the Tri-University Graduate Program in History have adopted a guaranteed minimum stipend for qualified, domestic, doctoral admissions. The financial package will normally consist of Graduate Teaching Assistantships, internal scholarships, and other funding. The level of support that a student can expect will be explained to the applicant at the point when the Tri-University Admissions Committee recommends their admission. 

All applicants are expected to apply for outside funding, such as the Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS) or the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) doctoral fellowship, or other appropriate awards. In the past, our students have been very successful in winning these and other competitive awards. Winning such awards is also an important step in building a strong curriculum vitae.
