Tuition & Finances

Students in the library

Category II funding information

Because the MLIS program is a professional program it is classified differently (Category II) from thesis-based master's programs (Category I). It does not have the guaranteed funding package that thesis-based programs offer. There are, however, a wide range of options for obtaining financial assistance. Please browse the lists below for bursary, scholarship and loan options.
