Cultural Studies


For current and prospective students

The University of Winnipeg has three different types of awards for which Cultural Studies students can apply to assist them in funding their education:

1) Program Awards 

  • These awards are specific to the MA Cultural Studies program. They are generally funds that go towards securing students research assistantships, teacher assistantships, and administrative assistant positions during the school year, and on occasion funds go towards tuition scholarships.

2) Internal Scholarships/Fellowships

  • These competitive awards are funded by the University of Winnipeg, and are open to students from all graduate programs. More information is available on the Internal Awards page of the University of Winnipeg's Graduate Studies website. 

3) External Scholarships/Fellowships
