Awards & Funding

At McMaster University, we believe that excellence in graduate studies is reinforced by providing funding to our graduate students so they can devote their time and energy to the successful completion of their studies.

Our Doctoral students receive a guaranteed minimum funding package of $17,500 with many departments setting higher funding levels. The majority of Master’s students in research degree programs also receive substantial funding packages.

Note: If your status as a student changes (i.e. graduate, leave of absence, withdrawn), your eligibility for bursaries, academic grants, travel awards, and scholarships may be affected.
