Laurier has a minimum funding policy to support full-time doctoral students to a minimum of $22,000 per year for the first four years of doctoral-level study. Students are expected to apply for any financial awards for which they are eligible. Funding may come from a combination of sources (and can differ from student to student), such as Laurier scholarships, external scholarships and on-campus employment income from teaching or research assistantships.
Financial support for full-time PhD in English students is available from several sources, including:
- Teaching Assistantships for the fall and winter term are available to all full-time students. Funding is also available in the form of Research Assistantships.
- Laurier Graduate Scholarships are 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 are competitive awards for which all students seeking graduate admissions should apply. Awards are based on merit and subject to provincial funding levels.
- SSHRC Doctoral Fellowships 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.
