Financial Support

As one of Canada's leading research institutions, Western places great importance on helping students finance their education. While at Western, students are encouraged to devote their full energy to the successful completion of their studies, and the university works to ensure the availability of stable funding.

Some funding is awarded upon entry into a program, some is based on recommendations from the program, and others must be applied for by the student, either to Western University or to an external funding agency.

Complete information regarding funding and financial support for graduate students is available through the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.
