The Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies is pleased to announce the launch of the Graduate Covid Program Delay Tuition Award program, which provides support to graduate students whose academic and/or research progress was delayed by disruptions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Students who were registered in a research-based graduate program during the Summer 2020 term will receive an award equivalent to their tuition assessment, less any other tuition awards received for the same term, if they remain registered beyond the median duration of their degree program (in most cases, upon registration in the 8th term of a Master’s program or the 17th term of a doctoral program).
In the next few days, funds will be assigned to students who were eligible to receive the award in September 2020, January 2021 and May 2021. In the future, the award will be assigned to eligible students before the start of each term. Students do not need to apply for this award; awards will be assigned automatically by G+PS.
G+PS will send an explanatory email to all students who:
(i) will have their award assigned in the next few days and
(ii) may be eligible, based on their 2020 Summer registration, to receive the award in the future.
