FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR STUDENTS

Most full-time students are offered some financial support. Master's students usually receive a teaching assistantship valued at approximately $10,300 or a graduate assistantship of value $8,000, covering the period from September to April. Ph.D. students normally receive a teaching assistantship plus up to an additional $4,000 in the form of a research assistantship during this period. Ph.D. students will normally also receive teaching and research assistantships for the summer term, in an amount of up to approximately $4,500.

Ph.D. students will normally continue to receive support for four years providing their studies are proceeding in a satisfactory manner. The level of support may be reduced after this period.

In addition to York support, students are urged to seek financial support from external sources.

Visa Students:
Visa students with limited funds can usually obtain a
special scholarship, which will compensate them for most of the higher international fees that they pay.

External Scholarships:
Students with high averages are encouraged to apply for external scholarships. These include NSERC scholarships and OGS scholarships. The latter are open to visa students.

York Scholarships:
A limited number of entrance scholarships of $3,000 are awarded to outstanding students. These are valid for the first year of study only at either the Master's or Doctoral level and are not renewable.

Bursaries:
The faculty of graduate studies will sometimes provide extra amounts for students who are having financial difficulties in meeting their fees and living expenses.
