Funding Overall graduate student funding for 2014–2015 remained level compared with 2013–2014 (Figure 2.6a). This was influenced by two factors: firstly, the total number of funded graduate students (MASc and PhD) grew by only two per cent from 2013–2014 to 2014–2015. Secondly, a job action in the Winter 2015 term affected earnings for teaching assistants. Total scholarship funding increased by four per cent in 2014–2015 over 2013–2014. This includes the NSERC,

Ontario Graduate Scholarships (OGS) and other external scholarships shown in Figure 2.7a, plus a variety of other U of T scholarships. With a slight decline in NSERC funding, more students are taking up OGS, as well as scholarships from other external sources, including the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the Ontario Trillium Scholarships.
