Graduate Student Resources and Services

Financial Support

A limited number of scholarships are available to academically excellent students. The specific names and details of each scholarship are outlined on the FGSR's Recruitment Scholarship page.  

All graduate students are welcome to apply for a Graduate Assistantship (Teaching or Research). Typically, these assistantships September – April and are governed by an agreement between the University and the Graduate Students’ Association which provides guidelines for remuneration and hours of work.  Graduate Assistantships serve as an apprenticeship for further academic or professional careers.  More information is available on the FGSR's Assistantship page

In addition to Graduate Assistantships, a variety of graduate fellowships, scholarships and bursaries are available to full-time graduate students. These are listed on the FGSR's Awards & Funding page.  

If students are interested in obtaining funds in relation to research, please review the Research Funding page

The application deadlines vary; please refer to the above mentioned websites for necessary information. If you have questions, please contact Tracy Quigley at tracy.quigley@ualberta.ca.
