Additional Financial Aid Information
The University normally provides four types of financial support to full-time students. They are employment income, graduate/department or research scholarships, internal scholarships and bursaries, and external awards tenable at the university. A student’s letter of offer or award letter from the University will include all details of financial support.

The University provides graduate scholarship awards to most regular graduate students in Ph.D. programs and in many Master’s thesis programs. These students must be full-time. Such scholarships are awarded annually. A Ph.D. student is normally eligible for his/her first four years. Students in Master’s programs are usually supported for their first three to six terms depending on the department. Subsequent support is at the department or graduate program’s discretion, unless the offer of admission guarantees otherwise.

Teaching Assistantships (TA) and contract employment income are offered to many graduate students registered in full-time programs. The award of a TA may vary but should not exceed 10 hours per week, plus three hours of training per term.
