Scholarships and Financial Aid

Graduate students at Carleton are funded both by sources within the University, and by external funding agencies, such as the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. In addition, Canadian students and landed immigrants enrolled in an Ontario graduate program are eligible to apply for Ontario Graduate Scholarships, which are valued as high as $15,000 Cdn.


Many graduate students are awarded teaching assistantships in their field of expertise, which allow hands-on participation in the classroom. Still others collaborate with public affairs faculty on award-winning research projects.

From endowed awards to graduate bursaries, teaching assistantships to graduate residence fellow positions, graduate students at Carleton have a myriad of options available to them to help finance their Carleton education, and provide invaluable teaching and research opportunities.
