Funding Package Explanations
- Last year, domestic PhD students received an average of $11,000 above the funding package.
- Last year, international PhD students received an average of $12,000 above the funding package.
- Please note that the average income may vary from year to year.
- Our funding package is provided for 5 years. Students are fully funded during years 1-4; in year 5, the funding support is reduced by 50%. However, students in year 5 may access additional funding sources (ie. Doctoral Completion Award, Internal Scholarships, etc.). For further information, please go to the SGS site “Understanding Your Funding”.
- In order to maintain eligibility for the funding package, students must maintain good standing and apply for external fellowships for which they are eligible. If a Teaching Assistant or Course Instructor assignment forms part of the funding package for a student in a given year and the student declines the assignment, the funding package for that year is reduced by the amount of the assignment.
