The MIDAs program is being phased out in favour of a graduate funding mechanism that allows for the development of funding programs at the faculty level. This will allow faculties to accommodate the unique situations of their own students. For more information on funding programs available, contact the Graduate Program Coordinator in your department/unit.
The MIDAs program will accept its last cohort of students in the Winter 2011 semester. International Ph.D students currently receiving the MIDAs will be grandfathered into the program and will continue to receive the MIDAs as long as they maintain their eligibility.
