Minimum funding levels

UOIT is committed to providing financial support to its graduate students in research-based master’s and doctoral programs. Each program has a minimum funding threshold for full-time students. These minimum levels may be met or exceeded in a given year and are typically offered for the standard length of the program. The minimum funding may be met through various sources of funding (see below) and these sources are normally outlined in the offer of funding at the time of admission.

Minimum funding may be achieved through any one or more of, but is not limited to, the following: graduate research assistantships, teaching assistantships and/or research assistantships.

Please note that these are minimums set by the university; individual programs may have higher minimum funding levels.

In order to continue to receive the minimum funding, students must continue to meet the eligibility criteria outlined in the Graduate Student Funding Terms and Conditions publication.
