Graduate Program in German — Graduate Funding

The M.A. program in German offers exceptional funding to its students. With over $20,000 on average for each student, our funding levels far exceed the Canadian average of G13 universities. 

The majority of scholarships and sources of financial support are open to international students as well as Canadian students:

  • Federal

    • Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Canada Graduate Scholarship ($17,500): Out of 10 eligible graduate students in German, five have received this prestigious award. 

    • Note: This award is only available to Canadian citizens and permanent residents.

  • Provincial

    • Alberta Graduate Student Scholarship: This scholarship ($3,000) is awarded annually to second-year M.A. students in our program.

University of Calgary Scholarships and Awards

  • Open Scholarship: All students submit applications for the Open Scholarship competition each January. Our students have been quite successful at securing awards, which range from $6,000 to over $9,000 annually.

  • Bursaries: Students may apply for these special awards through the Faculty of Graduate Studies.

  • Graduate Assistantships (Teaching and Non-teaching): All of our students receive the chance to work closely with faculty members as teaching and research assistants. This kind of funding gives students skills that help them build their future careers.

  • Additional funding from the Faculty of Graduate Studies:  All our students receive a portion of this funding as scholarship money.

We strongly encourage our students to apply for the scholarships which are available through the Faculty of Graduate Studies. In the past few years, our students have been very successful in securing scholarships and other awards. We are committed to assisting current and prospective students in the application procedure.
