Awards

The University has comprehensive scholarship programs that recognizes outstanding achievement at different levels of study. The University, its colleges, faculties and divisions award approximately 4,500 admission scholarships that total nearly $20 million and nearly 5,000 in-course awards each year.

Exciting news! We are pleased to announce the Award Explorer will be launching on 3 February 2020. The Award Explorer is the University of Toronto’s new award management tool that will be available for you to explore awards offered at U of T.


Scholarship Sorter

The Awards Sorter is available for students to explore awards that are available to University of Toronto applicants and students. The tool provides details on awards, including how to apply, if applicable. The Scholarship Sorter will be integrated with the Award Explorer tool, once it is launched!

Select the type of award you are interested in learning about. Future students should search for admission scholarships. Current students should look at awards for undergraduate or graduate students.

If the application deadline falls on a day the University is closed (e.g. weekend, statutory holiday, etc), applications are accepted on the following business day. 

The School of Graduate Studies maintains a list of major graduate awards accessible through their website.
