Re-patriate Posted May 3, 2013 Share Posted May 3, 2013 I'm a Canadian student going into a doctoral program at U of Toronto, and was fortunate enough to receive a CGS SSHRC, worth $35K over three years. I reported the news to my Department and was informed that both the funding guarantee and the tuition waiver would be clawed back (I believe that is the phrase). This is not a bad problem to have, given that I will come out more than $10K ahead of their funding guarantee, but it really surprised me -- like a strange 'tax' on winning a competitive award. In fact, it seemed that the best scenario would have been to receive a $9K award and take the guaranteed funding (about $23K), since the claw back only kicks in at $10K. Anyone else have experience of this? Can you negotiate with U of T? What do other Canadian universities do in this scenario? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
