The Faculty of Graduate Studies at York University continues to remain under strict adherence to the provincial COVID-19 response framework. As part of the University's plan to support a safe return to our campuses this fall, York has launched YU Screen, an automated COVID-19 self-assessment screening tool. All faculty, staff, instructors, students, researchers, contractors, visitors and vendors must use this tool daily to self-screen and confirm that they have not been exposed to COVID-19 before coming to York’s campuses. Please consult York University's COVID-19 website for further resources.

All of the regular functions of the Faculty of Graduate Studies are fully operational, and internal and external scholarship and award competitions are proceeding as planned.
