Students are expected to apply for any financial awards for which they are eligible. Consequently, some students may enter the MA program with a SSHRC or OGS award. Students who enter the program with an external award are eligible for an incentive scholarship.
Financial support for CAST students is available from several sources including:
- Assistantships for the fall and winter term, are available to all full-time students.
- 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.
- Ontario Graduate Scholarships, subject to provincial funding levels. These are competitive awards for which all students seeking graduate admissions should apply. Awards are based on merit.
- SSHRC CGS MA Scholarships. These scholarships are awarded based on merit, and are subject to federal funding levels. These competitive awards should be considered as a potential source of funding for all students seeking graduate admissions.
Information about graduate awards is available from the WLU Graduate Studies website.
