The Psychology department has a policy guaranteeing that students in normal residence (i.e., 2 years for MA, and 3 years for PhD) receive yearly financial support. Supervisors are primarily involved in ensuring that this financial support is achieved and maintained for their students. The total remuneration that you will receive is composed by a combination of fellowships, teaching assistantships, and research stipends. Effective September 2009, the minimum level of funding offered to students within normal residence is $15,000 per year, however the average level of financial support for incoming students is $20,000. Discuss the specific arrangements of your support package with your supervisor(s).
A variety of funding is available to Concordia graduate students. Concordia’s graduate funding website represents just a small sample of opportunities available to you as a graduate student. You will find these awards funded by either internal sources (Concordia University and its donors), or external sources (government and industry).
There are approximately 80 TAships available throughout the year. Students typically TA two 3-credit courses (one in the Fall, one in the Winter) or one 6-credit course (one course for the Fall and Winter). Compensation for a 3-credit course is approximately $3000.
