Funding Packages for the 2022-23 Academic Year

Important Notes

Details on ECE's funding commitment and how funding packages are structured and paid can be found on our guaranteed funding webpage.

The tables below summarize the tentative minimum funding packages for all MASc & PhD students within their period of guaranteed funding for the period of Sep. 2022 to Aug. 2023.

Please note that, as tuition & fee amounts are not finalized until late spring each year, the minimum funding amounts for the upcoming academic year are subject to minor changes until finalized in June or July. Students should rest assured that, as per the funding package formula, if tuition & fees are ultimately higher than expected the minimum funding package amounts will rise to offset the increase.

As demonstrated in the tables below, the total minimum funding amount (other than external scholarship, if applicable) is made up of contributions from the supervisor ('research fellowship') and the department ('student fellowship'). At their discretion, supervisors are permitted to pay more than the minimum required research fellowship amount.

Students are encouraged to apply for external scholarships & awards and are required to report awards valued at more than $5,000 to the ECE Graduate Office. Students who hold external awards valued at more than $5,000 will receive enhanced financial packages as per the tables below.

All amounts listed on this page and the ECE website are in Canadian dollars (CAD) unless otherwise indicated.
