The Master's program offers funding for domestic students (Canadian citizens & Permanent residents) comprised of a Graduate Teaching Assistantship covering part of their living expenses as well as a Western Graduate Research Scholarship (WGRS) funding that is applied towards part of their tuition fees. This funding is subject to change if a student receives an external scholarship.
International Students are eligible for a WGRS that is applied towards part of their tuition fees.
Graduate teaching assistantships require an average of 10 hours of teaching related duties per week for a total of 28 weeks. Students assist in the work of the Linguistics Program in various capacities, chiefly as graders, tutorial leaders, and teachers of introductory courses. Employment is covered by a collective agreement between the University and the Graduate Teaching Assistants' Union.
To be eligible for Financial Support in Year 2, students must be registered full-time and have applied for government funding.
