Scholarships, Bursaries & Awards

Scholarships, bursaries and financial aid are offered directly by your college of registration, with the exception of some scholarships that are offered through the TST Board of Trustees.

Except for the TST Board of Trustees scholarships, and the SSHRC and OGS competitions, inquiries and applications for financial assistance should be directed to your home college by contacting your college registrar for more information.

TST students in conjoint programs are automatically members of the University of Toronto Students' Union (UTSU), which offers financial assistance to its members. TST students may be eligible for some of UTSU's financial assistance programs. For additional sources of financial aid, see the University of Toronto's Financial Aid website.

GRADUATE DEGREE STUDENTS: Application forms for financial aid are separate from the application for admission and are available directly from your home college registrar. The registrar or graduate degree director of your college may also be aware of scholarships and bursaries available through other organizations. 

Applicants for admission to the next academic year may be eligible to apply for some scholarships, bursaries and awards - more information through the button links below.
