Supervisors are responsible for the financial support of graduate students under their supervision. Once a principal investigator has agreed to supervise a potential graduate student, that supervisor is then responsible for providing operating and stipend support for the student from their operating grants. Financial support may also be obtained through successful applications to internal University of Alberta sources or external funding agencies. The department does not support stipends or tuition for graduate students.
It is the graduate student’s responsibility to apply for appropriate internal or external funding, and it is the supervisor’s responsibility to facilitate those applications in a timely fashion. For further information regarding awards and scholarships, please see Funding Opportunities.
