Graduate students who remain in good academic standing are fully supported through a combination of teaching assistantship (typically 50 to 190 hours per year; up to 180 effective September 2017), research assistantship, external scholarships and/or University of Toronto Fellowship support.

Current annual stipend rates (scheduled to increase up to $650 in 2017-18):

  • $30,592*- base funding for students within the funded cohort**
  • Up to $32,823 - holders of Ontario Graduate Scholarship, The Queen Elizabeth II  Graduate Scholarship in Science and Technology**
