Graduate students at Mount Allison are typically supported financially by stipends, with $15,000 per year the current usual base stipend for full time graduate studies. Incoming students should discuss stipend and scholarship opportunities with their supervisor in advance of commencing their studies.
Scholarships and stipends are awarded to the student from external sources (e.g. NSERC, NBIF) or can be derived from research funding to faculty. Teaching assistantships are sometimes available as well.
At the time of admission the supervisor must provide the student and the graduate studies committee with a letter detailing the amount, duration, and source(s) of stipend support to the student.
For details, please check out graduate studies scholarships.
