Who is Eligible

This scholarship program is for dependants of University of Toronto Faculty Members (including Full-time Clinical Academic Appointees), Librarians, Professionals/Managers and Research Associates (those covered under the Policy for Research Associates (limited term) and Senior Research Associates) who are studying on a full-time basis in an eligible program of study at an eligible institution. For those studying part time at the University of Toronto, the tuition waiver program remains in effect.

Value of Scholarship

For dependants of full-time eligible employees, the value of the scholarship is equal to one-half the amount of the academic fees for five full courses in a general program in Arts and Science at the University of Toronto. For part-time Professionals/Managers and Research Associates with appointments of 25%-99%, the value will be pro-rated to the actual FTE.
For Faculty and Librarians who hold an appointment of 25%-75%, the value is pro-rated to the actual FTE. Where Faculty Members or Librarians hold an appointment of 76% or greater, the full value of the scholarship applies.

Payment of the award:

For University of Toronto students, the scholarship will be credited to the student’s account after classes begin in September. For information on deferring fees or making partial fee payments with scholarship, please see the Student Accounts website.

For students registering at other institutions, the scholarship funds will be forwarded to the appropriate institution and released to the student upon confirmation of enrollment in a full-time course load (80% or greater). Students must make the necessary arrangements with their University to ensure that payment deadlines are met. The University of Toronto cannot ensure that the award will be paid in time to meet another institution’s tuition fee deadlines.
