Tuition and Scholarships



Tuition rates for the MSEM program can be found here (select Programs with special tuition rates at left). In addition, students are required to pay these applicable student fees. Students who do not complete the MSEM program in a 12-month period will continue to pay tuition at the regular rate until the degree is complete.

Additional Fees: ENVS 801 and ENVS 802 field components are $200 each plus GST. This fee is subject to change by year. Payable when tuition is due.

Applicants who receive admission to the MSEM program are required to submit a deposit of $300 CDN to hold their spot in the limited capacity program. Successful applicants will receive a notice of acceptance and must mail the completed notice with a $300 CDN money order made payable to the University of Saskatchewan. The notice of acceptance and the money order must be received by SENS by the deadline specified in the letter or this offer will automatically lapse. The $300 deposit will be applied as partial payment of tuition fees at the time of registration and is non-refundable if a student subsequently decides not to enter the MSEM program.


Full tuition details are listed here. Listings of applicable student fees can be found here.

Additional Fees: ENVS 801 and ENVS 802 field components are $200 each plus GST. Payable when tuition is due.


All those with grade point averages of 80% or higher who successfully apply to the school’s thesis‐based programs will be considered for support or scholarship on the basis of merit. Several types of financial support are available through the School of Environment and Sustainability and the University of Saskatchewan.

School of Environment and Sustainability

Michelle’s Prize was established by the Canadian Environmental Law Association, and is available to University of Saskatchewan students in select environmental disciplines. Click here for more information.

The Nexen PhD Award in Energy, Environment and Sustainability will be awarded in 2014/15 to a doctoral student at the value of $30,000 per year for three years to pursue research related to energy policy and governance. For more information on this award, please contact SENS

Dean’s Scholarship

The Dean's Scholarship is offered to students who have outstanding academic records, show research promise and are registering for the first time in a thesis-based graduate program. Faculty or academic units make nominations for the Dean’s Scholarships; students do not apply directly.

The program provides Doctoral Scholarships ($20,000 for one year with possible one-year renewal) and Masters Scholarships ($18,000 for one year with possible one-year renewal). In both cases, you must be able to guarantee an additional year of matching funds for your graduate student at the relevant rate.
