Awards & Scholarships

The Registrar’s Office has introduced a new, efficient application method for student awards. Instead of looking up and applying for individual awards, students will now submit an awards profile that will allow them to be considered for all relevant UTSC application-based scholarships and awards. Students should go to the Registrar’s homepage to apply or visit https://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/registrar/applying-awards (click on ‘Awards Profile’ in step one under ‘How to apply’). For awards that require a direct application to the Department of Arts, Culture and Media, please see the ads listed below.

The Department of Arts, Culture and Media also offers scholarships and awards to students enrolled in our courses and programs. Our students are also eligible for University-sponsored bursaries and grants.
