Stipends will consist of some combination of research supervisor grant funds, scholarship funds from the School of Graduate Studies, and TA placements based on availability of resources and need. The TA work will be performed where the student’s undergraduate and graduate background can be utilized.

Students are encouraged to apply for relevant external scholarships including NSERC, CIHR, OGS, and OGSST.  Students with external scholarships typically are eligible to receive TA support and a School of Graduate Studies Scholarship allocation. They may also receive additional support from research grants at the discretion of the supervisor.

McMaster University puts time limits on funding that are normally 24 months for Masters’ students and 4 years for Ph.D. students. Funding beyond these limits can be given from research grants at the discretion of the supervisor.
