Admissions funding for domestic graduate students
Internal awards and funding
Applicants to research-based graduate programs who are studying full-time are automatically considered for some types of funding at the time of admission. If eligible, they may receive the details of their assistantship(s) and/or scholarship outlined in their offer of admission.
Types of funding that do not require an application:
- Entrance scholarships
- Minimum funding packages
- Teaching assistantships, research assistantships and graduate research assistantships
Applicants to professional programs (graduate diploma programs, MBA, MBA-MITS, MEd, MEng, MEngM, MITS) are not normally considered for these sources of funding from the university.
External awards and funding
Graduate program applicants are encouraged to apply for external awards to help finance their education. The application process differs for each competition, so review the information carefully to determine where and when you must apply. Please note: the majority of these awards are for domestic or permanent residents only.
Graduate Student Funding Terms and Conditions
All applicants who receive an offer of funding are expected to read and understand the funding eligibility terms and conditions as described in the Graduate Student Funding Terms and Conditions publication.
