Ryerson Graduate Development Award (RGDA)
A Ryerson Graduate Development Award (RGDA) is a non-merit-based award provided by an individual graduate program.
There is no maximum value for this award. It is tenable for a maximum of one year but may be renewed for subsequent years at the progam's discretion.
There is no deadline as all eligible students applying to graduate programs at Ryerson will be considered for the RGDA.
Graduate Program Committees must specify their funding policies in their proposals to the Yeates School of Graduate Studies Scholarship and Awards Committee. Funding policies and practices associated with existing and future Joint Graduate Programs with other institutions will normally be consistent with the policies of the YSGS. Differential practices and harmonization terms are subject to negotiation, development and review by the Vice-Provost and Dean of Graduate Studies and the Programs and Planning Committee of the School of Graduate Studies.
