Scholarships and Financial Aid U of T provides you with two assurances regarding financial support; one based on need and the other primarily based on academic merit. The university’s policy on student financial support states that no student admitted to a program at the University of Toronto will be unable to enrol or complete the program because they do not have sufficient funds. This commitment to students who are Canadian citizens, permanent residents or protected persons means that U of T will supplement the funding provided by government sources. This financial assurance is called UTAPS (University of Toronto Advanced Planning for Students). The University of Toronto Scholars Program recognizes outstanding students at admission. Awards worth $7,500 each

UTM Entrance Awards All students who apply directly from high school are automatically considered for UTM Entrance Awards. Awards are based on admission averages and include only grades obtained from the first attempt at a course. Students are notified in their offer of admission letter if they are eligible.
