Limited funding is available for graduate students to supplement thesis research and for conference attendance.

Graduate Thesis Funding

Graduate students are eligible to claim certain expenses related to their thesis work. The following research related expenses are eligible for claims for reimbursement:

  • travel for data collection
  • printing
  • photocopy cards
  • mailing
  • telephone cost
  • minor items of equipment (e.g., tapes, disks)
  • transcription cost 

The maximum amount allowable for any individual student is normally $200. Students may make claims in excess of $200 and any balance remaining in the fund at the end of the year may be distributed at the discretion of the Graduate Studies Scholarships, Assistantships, and Awards Committee.

Applications must be submitted on the application form which requires a signature from the Supervisor to confirm that the research has been approved and that the expenses are justified. All claims must be made after the expense has been incurred and must be accompanied by receipts for every item claimed.

Applications for reimbursement of expenses must be accompanied by confirmation that the research has been approved by the University Ethics Research Board and the thesis committee (or relevant faculty member).
