U of T is committed to the financial support of graduate students in doctoral-stream programs. For eligible students, funding packages consist of an amount equal to the cost of academic tuition fees plus a $15,000 stipend.

Students in professional master's and doctoral programs typically self-fund their educational expenses through a variety of programs including student loans, student line of credit, and employment income. Students may also be eligible for a limited number of graduate awards made available through their graduate units and various external agencies.


Established in 1827, the University of Toronto has one of the strongest research and teaching faculties in North America, presenting top students at all levels with an intellectual environment unmatched in depth and breadth on any other Canadian campus.

The University of Toronto is committed to being an internationally significant research university, with undergraduate, graduate and professional programs of excellent quality. U of T is dedicated to fostering an academic community in which the learning and scholarship of every member may flourish, with vigilant protection for individual human rights, and a resolute commitment to the principles of equal opportunity, equity and justice.

The University of Toronto is determined to build on its past achievements and so enhance its research and teaching. The University anticipates that it will remain a large university. It will continue to exploit the advantages of size by encouraging scholarship in a wide range of disciplines in the humanities, social sciences, sciences and the professions. It will continue to value its inheritance of colleges and federated universities that give many students an institutional home within the large University. It will strive to make its campuses attractive settings for scholarly activity.
