The department strives to support its doctoral students with funding for at least four years. Students must make adequate progress to retain their initial level of funding over the course of their award. Generally, this means maintaining a GPA of 7 or higher. Sources for funds can include teaching and research assistantships, grants and fellowships from the Faculty of Graduate Studies, external grants and fellowships, and sessional teaching work for doctoral students after completion of all coursework and candidacy exams.
All eligible students in their first three years in the program are required to apply for funding from provincial, federal or other external sources.
