Financial Support

All full-time MA and PhD students offered a place in the STS graduate program will receive a funding package consisting of a fellowship (MA and PhD) and teaching assistantship (PhD only). Other funding opportunities (e.g. scholarships) are available at York and we are happy to support applicants pursuing them:

  • See here for internal funding opportunities at York;
  • See here for external funding opportunities; 
  • As a program, we also have a number of entrance scholarships (York Graduate Scholarship) for excellent candidates, with most of these reserved for applicants to the MA program; and
  • Faculty members with research grants often have funding for Research Assistantships, so check out the current grants held by faculty here.

International students receive a similar funding package, although there are more limited places for international students.

It is important to note that all funding is contingent on continuous registration as a full-time student, continued satisfactory performance in the program, and the fulfillment of your funding-related employment obligations.
