Financial Support Available The Department provides financial support for candidates accepted into the graduate program in the form of a teaching assistantship and departmental research scholarship. MSc students normally receive support for up to two years from the time of initial registration in the program, and PhD students up to four years. All full-time graduate students are automatically considered for financial support. Current minimum levels of support are $19,000 for MSc and $21,000 for PhD students. Many of our students secure scholarships from Provincial or Federal granting agencies including inparticular the Canadian Institutes for Health Research, National Science and Engineering Research Council and Ontario Graduate Scholarships.
