Scholarships vs. Assistanships


Recommended Posts

Hello all! I was just recently granted admission to a program at Carleton University. I was given some funding that includes 3 scholarships over the next two years,.... However, there was no offer of assistanship or anything,... they also told me it is not possible to get one if you were not offered so at the beginning. Should I be disappointed?

I don't know. Do the scholarships cover your tuition and healthcare plus give you a stipend? If they do and the stipend amount is comparable to what an assistantship pays, then you should be the opposite of disappointed - free money is better than money for work. If, however, the two are not comparable, then, yes, I would be disappointed unless I was independently wealthy!
