Financial Support and Funding Opportunities

There are wide ranges of funding opportunities for our graduate students; teaching assistanships, research assistantships, scholarships, awards and bursaries are all possibilities available to students who pursue their education at the University of Lethbridge. Some awards are granted based primarily on academic proficiency however, other criteria (e.g. financial need, leadership potential, community involvement, artistic ability, athletic skill) may also be considered. 

For more information regarding the terms of reference and eligibility criteria, please visit the Awards and Scholarships section of the Graduate Academic Calendar.   This section of the Calendar will help guide graduate students to understand their eligibility and the requirements for funding opportunities. 

To ensure student records are accurate and up to date, individuals are responsible for notifying the Awards Advisor of all funding received and changes to funding while registered in a graduate program.

 

Contact the Award Advisor for additional assistance.

Renewal Process:

For mulit year awards, you must submit an Annual Progress Report on Scholarship in order for you next year of funding to be put into place. This report should be submitted to the Graduate Award Advisor prior to the anniversary of your scholarship to ensure there is no disruption to your payments.
