A Master’s or PhD Student in the Faculty of Medicine receives a stipend of guaranteed funding for completing work that is directly related to their education and training. Please refer to the Program Website or contact the Graduate Program Administrator for your department to obtain information related to minimum funding requirements. This payment can be made as a stipend (monies paid from a supervisor’s grant) or paid directly from a scholarship (or award) won by the individual student or both. The stipend payment is considered T4A income and is not eligible for statutory deductions. Income covered by T4A include research grants, scholarships/stipends, bursaries and fellowships. Please ensure that the account code provided on the payment form being submitted is permissible under the project by checking eFIN prior to submission. Very rarely, a Granting Agency may stipulates that only Employment/Salary (T4) Income may be paid from the project. In this instance and only if a request to pay a scholarship/stipend (T4A) has been denied by the granting agency, the student may be paid an employment salary. Statutory deductions will apply; including the employer paid portion. This additional cost is required to be calculated as part of the project funds availability. (Statutory Deductions include: Employment Insurance, Canada Pension Plan, Worker’s Compensation Benefit and Income Tax).
