Research Assistantship/Research Stipend (RA)

Individual professors in the Department apply for and receive grants to support their research programs, and a large proportion of these funds are spent on student RA. Typically, RA is paid to a student on a monthly basis, on the 28th day of each month.

MASc and PhD students receive a summary of their financial support for the year, normally in mid-September. Ultimately, graduate students are responsible for ensuring that their own total compensation meets the minimum funding package levels, and any stipend issues should first be discussed with the student’s supervisor.

RAs are managed by Julie Mendonca in room WB201C.
