Financial Information and Awards

All Candidates for M.A. or PhD degrees are strongly urged to apply for OGS, CGS, SSHRC Fellowships, and other scholarships where they are eligible, given the overall limitation of available funds at all levels. For more information regarding external awards, the Faculty of Graduate Studies has developed a scholarship database, which is available for students to use in 283 York Lanes. Various forms of financial assistance are available to students. York University and external agencies offer numerous fellowships, assistantships, scholarships, awards, prizes, and grants. Graduate students are encouraged to consult with their particular program for advice on financial matters. Unfortunately, space does not permit a complete listing, but below is a directory of some of the assistance that may be of particular interest to graduate students.

For more information on scholarships and other forms of funding please see the Faculty of Graduate Studies website.
