How to get financing supports?

  • University Funding: A "survive" guideline for graduate students at graduate program in Biology at York University
  • Financing Supports for PhD Students:

    A domestic student can expect financial support at approximately $21,000 per year, comprising a package of Research, Teaching, and Financial Assistantships, valid for up to four years. This support is subject to funding available to supervisors and to our graduate program. It is also subject to satisfactory academic progress and employability as a Teaching Assistant on the part of the student. International students can expect additional assistance in the form of an International Student Tuition Fee Scholarship for up to three years, currently set at $4,800 per year. An extension is possible. Again this is subject to available funds. All full-time students who hold a Teaching Assistantship belong to a certain union (known as CUPE). Union membership confers a number of benefits. One of these is by way of a Graduate Financial Assistance, currently set at approximately $1,500 per year. There are other sources of assistance such as Bursaries, Research Cost Fund, Graduate Development Fund, etc. Some of these are administered in accordance with need, some on academic grounds, some on a combination of considerations.

    Students on paid educational or other leave from their employer, or holding substantial scholarships (e.g NSERC or OGS) are not normally eligible for program (GA) or supervisor (RA) support, but scholarship holders are eligible for Teaching Assistantships (TAs).
  • Financing Supports for Master Students:

    A domestic student pursuing an MSc degree by Thesis can expect financial support at approximately $18,000 per year, comprising a package of Scholarships and/or Research, Teaching, and Financial Assistantships, valid for up to two years. This support is subject to funding available to supervisors and to our graduate program. It is also subject to satisfactory academic progress and employability as a Teaching Assistant on the part of the student. International students pursuing an MSc degree by Thesis can expect additional assistance in the form of an International Student Tuition Fee Scholarship for up to two years, currently set at $4,800 per year.
