Students are expected to apply for any financial awards for which they are eligible. Consequently, some students may enter the MA program with a Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship award (SSHRC CGS) or an Ontario Graduate Scholarship. Students who enter the program with this type of external award are automatically eligible for the Deanís Scholarship.
Financial support for SJCE students is available from several sources including:
1. Teaching Assistantships for the fall and winter terms are available to all full-time students.
2. WLU Graduate Scholarships, awarded on a competitive basis to full-time graduate students who achieve high academic standing. These scholarships are tenable for study at Laurier while enrolled as a full-time student.
3. Ontario Graduate Scholarships. These are competitive awards for which all students seeking graduate admissions should apply. Awards are based on merit.
4. Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship (SSHRC CGS). These scholarships are awarded based on merit, and are subject to federal funding levels.
