75th Anniversary Recruitment Scholarships

As part of a university-wide program, SENS is pleased to announce the creation of several “75th Anniversary Recruitment Scholarships” for exceptional students wishing to enroll in a thesis program (PhD or MES) in the School. The program guarantees a limited number of students a stipend of $30,000 (PhD students) or $25,000 (MES students) for their first year and a minimum stipend of $27,000 (PhD—for two more years) and $25,000 (MES—for one more year) thereafter (subject to change). Higher stipends and longer durations may be negotiated with the chosen faculty advisor. All regular rules for application to a SENS thesis program remain in effect.

Other Opportunities

There are a variety of funding sources for graduate students at Usask. Many students are supported by a combination of awards, fellowships, or scholarships from university wide competitions, department specific opportunities, and national or external awards.

Student Travel Award

SENS can provide financial assistance to graduate students who wish to participate in academic-related conferences and other formal academic activities. Students are also encouraged to apply for the Usask Student Travel Award and other appropriate sources of travel funding. Please note that funding for this initiative varies from fiscal year to fiscal year.
