Financial Aid & Advising

New Chair’s Excellence Fellowship

The Chair’s Excellence Fellowship (CEF) will be awarded every year to a maximum of 2 black or indigenous PhD students who are receiving the IBET Momentum Fellowship. The CEF will be equal to the difference between the minimum funding guarantee and the value of the IBET ($25,000).  Additionally, students will receive a top-up to the minimum funding guarantee as outlined in our Graduate Student Funding.

Departmental Awards

Departmental Awards are open to all MASc and PhD students within the funded cohort, unless otherwise specified. Each award may have different eligibility requirements which may include academic merit and financial need. Most award funds come from interest income of endowed funds generously donated from various sources.

Award Distribution

In cases where awards/scholarships are less than or equal to $3000 in value, the recipient’s total annual funding is increased by the award/scholarship amount. In cases where awards/scholarships are greater than $3000 in value, the recipient’s total annual funding is increased by $3,000 and the department and supervisor contributions are decreased by 50% of the differential (i.e., scholarship amount -$3000).
