Additional Funding

There are several ways to aquire funding to help offset tutition costs.

Scholarships

Many of our students receive a scholarship or other financial assistance throughout the program. For new students, you don't need to apply for scholarships. You are automatically put into the scholarship pool when you apply. Find more information about scholarships here.

Work-Study Program

There is also a Work-Study Program for students. The Work-Study Program is an opportunity for students to help out on campus while earning a supplemental income. Work-Study positions are available in the 2nd and 3rd semesters and vary every semester. Students must apply for the positions. The standard rate is $25/hour. Because your first commitment is to your studies, students are limited to 12 hours per week.

Students may also be able to secure a well-paid four-month internship in their internship semester. However, please be advised that not all internships are paid equally. Some students choose to work in exchange for very valuable experiences in the field they desire to enter within digital media, or they choose to join a startup for an equity stake.

Tech Scholarship

The Master of Digital Media program is committed to ensuring students have the software and hardware required to successfully complete the program. Students who are enrolled full time and have a minimum CGPA of 3.5 will qualify to receive up to $2,000.00 CAD (lifetime amount) towards hardware/software purchases.
