The Don Wright Faculty of Music places great importance on helping graduate students finance their education. We offer generous financial support for eligible graduate students in our Master’s and doctoral degree programs (with the exception of the Summer/Online MMus in Music Education program, which is not funded)
All eligible Master’s students receive a merit-based scholarship award (Western Graduate Research Scholarship) that is equivalent to a percentage of the cost of tuition and fees (partial to full tuition) for five terms. Graduate Teaching Assistantships are available for a limited number of Master’s students. To be eligible for funding upon admission, students must possess a minimum admission average of 78% (74% for the MMus in Literature and Performance). Students must maintain an average of at least 78% to hold their funding while enrolled in the program.
All eligible doctoral students receive funding (Western Graduate Research Scholarship) at least equal to the cost of tuition and fees, plus $12,000 from all sources. This funding package normally includes a full Graduate Teaching Assistantship involving teaching-related duties that average 10 hours per week for 14 weeks in the Fall and Winter terms.
Tuition and fees are paid at the beginning of each Fall, Winter, and Summer term. For more information on tuition and fees, please consult the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral studies Student Finances page.
