UTSC students have access to approximately $3.6 million in scholarships and financial aid from the University. We want to make sure that that cost of education is not a deterrent to earning a university degree.

You are automatically considered for some of these funds when you apply to UTSC. For others, you will need to apply.

Guaranteed Entrance Scholarship Qualifications

UTSC now has defined criteria for awarding guaranteed entrance scholarships to all domestic and international students studying in Canadian secondary schools who are admitted to U of T Scarborough. These awards are based on final grades received by June 2014.

Final Admission Average Scholarship Value Notes
95% and above $12, 000
($3,000 x 4 years)
Renewable for three additional years with a cumulative GPA of at least 3.70
92.0% - 94.9% $2, 000 If you qualify for the President’s Entrance Scholarship it is possible that a portion or all of the funds will be paid through the President’s Scholarship program.
90.0% - 91.9% $1, 500  
88.0% - 89.9% $1, 000 Only open to applicants of Arts and Science Programs at UTSC.


  • Entrance scholarships are based on your final admission average in June and calculated using your top six grade 12 U/M or equivalent final marks (or equivalent) including English.
  • If you qualify for an entrance award, we will notify you in your Offer of Admission.
  • To retain an award allocated on mid-term or predicted grades, you will need to maintain strong academic achievement on your final results. Courses must be completed by June of the current academic year to be considered for the award. Upgraded marks and marks for courses taken in the summer immediately before your admitted term to the University are not used in our assessment of final grade averages for scholarships. Where a course has been repeated, the first grade attained will be used.

Awards – application may be required

As a UTSC student, you are automatically eligible for some awards, based on academic excellence. You can also apply to some application-only awards, which are also based on academic excellence.

In-Course Awards

After your first year, you may qualify for additional scholarships and awards. These awards are generally based on your achievements during subsequent years of study. Some are automatically considered, and others require applications. More information is available on the Financial Aid & Awards website.
