Doctoral candidates will receive $20,000/year in guaranteed funding for four years. First year funding is provided by the PhD Program and the remaining three years are provided by the student’s supervisor/area. Candidates are expected to assist professors in their area of specialization by performing some research/teaching tasks (i.e., tutorials, office hours, grading, programming, etc.). This work will not exceed 15 hours per week. In years 2, 3, and 4, students are funded by a combination of different sources such as teaching, research work, etc. All funding is conditional on satisfactory academic performance.
Students that receive external awards (i.e., SSHRC, CHIR, NSERC, etc…) will receive partial guaranteed funding from the supervisor/area.
