Financial Information & Awards
Our financial commitment is met through a number of sources from the university and can include a Teaching Assistantship, a Research Assistantship and an Entrance Scholarship.
Many of our students are also successful at obtaining prestigious external scholarships from federal, provincial, and private agencies on top of the York University assistantships and scholarships regularly received in the graduate program. Canadian citizens and landed immigrants are eligible for:
- Canadian Institutes of Health Research Studentships
- Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada Scholarships
- Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada Scholarships
- Ontario Graduate Scholarships
As well as more highly specialized scholarships including the Health Research Personnel Development Student Awards, National Institute on Mental Retardation Awards and Ontario Mental Health Fellowships.
Students may apply to the Faculty of Graduate Studies Bursary Fund (when available). The awards are based on need, the first priority being visa students. Exceptionally well-qualified student visa applicants may be eligible for awards that enable them to pay the same fees as Canadian residents.
