Fellowships, Scholarships and Teaching Assistantships

Fellowships and Scholarships

Students admitted to the PhD program will receive five-year financial package that includes for each year $16,500 plus tuition. Foreign students will have their higher tuition fully paid with this offer. The sources of funding may vary from year-to-year and may include S.S.H.R.C. and O.G.S. scholarship that you will be expected to apply for each year in October as well as scholarships provided by the Connaught Fund and University of Toronto Fellowships, and Teaching Assistantship and the Research Assistantship funded through the Department.  No T.A. hours will be required if you apply for and receive a S.S.H.R.C., or O.G.S. scholarship. This funding package is contingent in part on your maintaining satisfactory progress toward completion of your degree and acceptance of any work assignment provided as part of the package. The Department and the School of Graduate Studies provide additional support for research and conference travel. These are available to students upon completion of their exams. Applications for other fellowships and scholarship funds are made available in the fall of each year, almost a year prior to the date they commence. Information on deadline dates for submitting applications for next year will be posted in the Department as soon as received.
