PhD students who are accepted at the University of Guelph are guaranteed a minimum stipend of $17,500 per year over three years of full-time study.  However, most departments participating in the collaborative specialization set a higher minimum standard. Graduate students are by and large provided with financial support through their home departments.  This includes university graduate scholarships, teaching assistantships, graduate research assistantships, etc.   Travel, research and other funding is also available through grants at the college and university levels.
