Funding Opportunities


We offer both teaching and research assistantships for graduate students on a competitive basis. All students who are accepted into our graduate program receive financial support for a minimum of 3 years (M.Sc.) or 5 years (Ph.D.). Current rates are listed here.

Ph.D. applicants are also eligible for University of Alberta Ph.D. Scholarships that include a full stipend and fees for up to two years. Students holding NSERC scholarships currently receive a supplement for each year of the award from the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research. If you are thinking of applying for graduate studies, don't miss any of the important deadlines for scholarships and assistantships.
