At Trent, all eligible graduate students may be offered competitive funding for support in their studies. Support is offered through the provision of Graduate Teaching Assistantships and Research Fellowships. You will have an opportunity to gain valuable experience as a Teaching Assistant in our first and second year undergraduate courses. Teaching assistantships involve leading seminar discussions, grading exams and papers, and providing guidance to undergraduate students in their courses. In addition to serving as Teaching Assistants, a number of graduate students each year have the opportunity to participate directly in faculty research as Research Assistants or Interns.
