Funding Your Masters Degree
Students in our Masters programs self-fund their education through a variety of means. Many students utilize government loan programs, UTAPs, scholarships, awards, funding packages*, and personal/bank loans to finance their studies. It is a student's responsibility to ensure they have a viable financial plan for each year of study. Students are encouraged to maintain a budget and consult this website as well as the SGS website for up-to-date information about awards and financial aid opportunities.
*MVS students in the studio art practice stream recieve a funding package each year in the sum of approximately $10,000CAD. More information can be found under the Awards tab on the left.
