Services and Support

Doctoral Fellowships
A limited number of fellowships are available to students who are not in full-time paid employment. Fellowships are in the amount of $15,000 per annum and are available for a three-year period. Tuition fees are deducted from the fellowship, with the net proceeds to the student paid out over three academic terms.

Request for a fellowship should be made at the time of application.

Office Space
Students in the Ph.D. Program have access to shared office space in the Sobey building. Offices are typically equipped with three to four desks and state of the art computer desktops with email and internet capability.

Conference Allowance
In an effort to encourage active participation in academic conferences, Ph.D. students can apply annually for funding to defray conference registration fees and travel expenses. Application is made to the Director of the PhD Program and approval is based on presentation of a scholarly paper.

McGraw-Hill Ryerson Ph.D. Reference Collection
Thanks to the generosity of McGraw-Hill Ryerson, the Sobey Ph.D. program has a growing collection of reference materials reserved exclusively for the use of doctoral students.

Teaching Opportunities
Students in the doctoral program are encouraged to gain teaching experience, and as such are offered part-time teaching opportunities. Part-time teaching appointments are limited to two courses per term and compensation is determined by the collective agreement of the part-time instructors' union. Students who do not have previous teaching experience are expected to enroll in the PhD Pedagogy course before being allowed to teach in the Department of Management. Anyone interested in teaching should contact the Management Department Chair immediately upon confirmation of acceptance.
