MSc and PhD Studentships

The Department of Mathematics at the University of Manitoba invites applications for 4-year PhD and 2-year MSc studentships. The department offers research opportunities in a wide spectrum of areas in mathematics. The successful studentship is funded at a minimum annual stipend of $19,000 for MSc students and $21,000 for PhD students beginning in Fall 2017. Typically students make significantly more than the minimum. Strong candidates may qualify for additional financial support in the form of entrance scholarships. See Dr. Murray Gordon Bell Graduate Student Award and Dr. Narain D. Gupta Scholarship. Tuition for students with a GPA greater than 3.5/4.5 are:

  • MSc: $4,594 in year 1 and $740 in subsequent years
  • PhD: $4,594 in years 1-2 and $740 in subsequent years.
All amounts are in Canadian dollars in 2016. See here for a comparison of the total tuition fees for M.Sc. (2 years) and Ph.D. (4 years) degrees with other universities in 2014.
