The Department of Archaeolog at Simon Fraser University does not currently guarantee funding to all incoming graduate students. On average, our students receive $14,000 in funding every year. The department places no limits on the amount of scholarship funding that a student may receive provided that the total does not surpass the SFU limit of $50,000 of scholarship support per academic year.
Funding can be made up of scholarships, bursaries, awards, fellowships, TA/TM-ships, or RAships.
We recommend that all eligible students apply for TriCouncil, Vanier, and Trudeau scholarships.
