Medical Biophysics Graduate Student Stipends



MSc Annual Stipend

  • As a Medical Biophysics MSc student, you will receive $14,200 per year take-home pay to cover your living expenses.
  • The program will cover your entire tuition and ancillary fee bill.


In the 2012-2013 academic year, the total annual stipend (living expenses + tuition fees) for a MSc student amounted to approximately $23,000 for domestic students and $33,000 for international students. The higher rate for international students reflects the higher tuition fees assigned to them by the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges, and Universities. However, the annual take-home pay ($14,200) is the same in both cases.

  • For students receiving external awards (e.g. NSERC, CIHR, or OGS scholarships), the program pays your entire tuition and ancillary fee bill and provides a top-up (for the length of the scholarship) so that your total take-home pay consisting of the scholarship amount and the top-up amount exceeds $14,200 per year.

Stipend Guarantee For The Length of Time To Complete A MSc Degree:

MSc stipends are guaranteed for 2 years which is the time required to complete this degree.



 

 

PhD Annual Stipend

  • As a Medical Biophysics MSc student, you will receive $15,200 per year take-home pay to cover your living expenses.
  • The program will cover your entire tuition and ancillary fee bill.

 

In the 2012-2013 academic year, the total annual stipend (living expenses + tuition fees) for a PhD student amounted to approximately $24,000 for domestic students and $34,000 per year for international students. The higher rate for international students reflects the higher tuition fees assigned to them by the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges, and Universities.

  • For students receiving external awards (e.g. NSERC, CIHR, or OGS scholarships), the program pays your entire tuition and ancillary fee bill and provides a top-up (for the length of the scholarship) so that your total take-home pay consisting of the scholarship amount and the top-up amount exceeds $15,200 per year.

 

Stipend Guarantee for the Length of Time To Complete A PhD Degree Under The Following Conditions:

  • If you are entering our PhD program after completing a MSc degree, your basic stipend is guaranteed for 4 years which is the time required to complete a PhD degree.
  • If you are directly entering our PhD program after completing a Bachelor’s degree, your basic stipend is guaranteed for 5 years.
  • If you reclassify from a MSc degree in our program to a PhD degree, your basic stipend is guaranteed for 5 years from your initial registration date as a MSc student.
