SGS Parental Grants Available

Did you know? In 2017 SGS unveiled new Parental Grants for doctoral students within the funded cohort. These grants help offset the loss of funding as a result of taking an approved parental leave of absence at the time of birth or adoption in order to provide full-time care during the child’s first year or the first year the child comes into care (see SGS Leave of Absence Policy).

Parental Grants of up to $4,000 will be provided to eligible student parents during the approved leave of one session or more. Birth mothers may be eligible for a second instalment of up to $4000 to support parental leaves of two sessions (8 months) or more in duration. The total amount of the Grant will be calculated based on other non-employment related supplemental University funding the student may have available.
