Student Finances

At York University, we value the contribution of our master’s and doctoral students. We also know that academic achievement doesn’t just happen. It takes hard work, perseverance and support.

York offers competitive funding to excellent full-time students accepted into our graduate programs. Sources for this funding include awards, scholarships, bursaries, teaching assistantships, research assistantships, graduate assistantships, and York Graduate Scholarships for our top-ranked students.

We also encourage and support students in their applications for prestigious external provincial and national awards. Together with additional York awards and funding, external scholarships are a measure of academic excellence, and they allow students the time to focus on their research and make progress in their studies.
