Funding

Money matters

At Ryerson, we recognize that pursuing graduate studies is a significant financial investment. To that end, we want to ensure that you are able to focus on your studies and research while pursuing your graduate degree. There are a number of funding packages – internal and external – available to graduate students.

How it works

When you are accepted into a Ryerson graduate program, your offer of admission will set out the financial obligations for both you and the university.

You may be offered financial support, for a part of or for the full duration of your tenure in the program, in the form of scholarships, awards, stipends, bursaries, or assistantships.

An offer of funding will state the amount of funding, duration of funding, conditions for renewal (if any), terms of continued funding, and other relevant details. You have to agree to the terms of the admission offer and funding arrangements prior to your enrollment in your program of choice.

As you are expected to have sufficient means of financial support for the length of time you are enrolled in a program, we encourage you to apply for external scholarship and award programs for which you are eligible. As scholarships and awards – both internal and external – are awarded based on merit, students from Ontario who have financial need may consider applying for loans and grants through the Ontario Government Student Assistance Program. We also offer the Ryerson Graduate Student Emergency Bursary. Contact gradfunding@ryerson.ca if you need assistance.
