University of Toronto Scholarships for International Students to study in Canada / Updated

University of Toronto is a top notch university in Canada and the world at large. Founded in the year 1827, the university has grown to accommodate students from all over the world. It is located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The institution believes that no student offered admission to bachelors, masters, or doctoral program should be unable to complete the course due to a lack of finances. With that in mind, home and foreign  students are offered various University of Toronto scholarships, fellowship, and grants.

The major portion of the University of Toronto Scholarships is derived from the operating funds of the university and endowments. For 2019-20, the university provided 247M CAD for financial aid, increasing from 239.1M CAD in 2018-2019. Several of the University of Toronto scholarships are based on academic merit and are awarded at the time of admission to the University of Toronto. These are available for bachelor, masters, and doctoral programs at the university.

Along with the University of Toronto Scholarships, masters and doctoral students are also nominated for scholarships under the Ontario and Canadian government. Some of these include Ontario Graduate Scholarship, Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation Doctoral Scholarships, etc. But, UToronto Bachelor program students do have to seek financial aid through external programs and donations. For them, the University of Toronto has designed several scholarship programs.



University of Toronto Scholarships for Bachelor Students

For the Bachelors students, the University of Toronto Scholarships are awarded under two categories: Admission Scholarships and In-Course Scholarships. While the in-course scholarships are open to students, irrespective of their nationalities, the same can’t be said for the admission scholarships. These vary for domestic and international students.

Annually, the University of Toronto awards 4,000 admission scholarships to its incoming domestic and international students. This includes the university’s flagship scholarship program for international entrants- Lester B. Pearson International Scholarship Program. This is the only full-ride scholarship offered by the University of Toronto.

  • Eligibility:
    • Demonstration of a certain level of originality of thoughts and creativity in high school and community.
    • Academically outstanding and active participation in extracurricular activities.
    • Demonstration of leadership skills
  • Application Process:
    • Get nominated by the present high school for the Lester B. Pearson International Scholarship.
    • Complete the admission application and then complete the scholarship application.



Around 38 Lester B. Pearson scholars are selected every year and are awarded funds that cover their tuition, book, travel and cost of living in Canada. This year, the university plans to support about 150 Pearson Scholars through the Lester B. Pearson International Scholarship, covering tuition fees and living expenses for four years.

Aside from this scholarship program, there are other University of Toronto Scholarships available for all international students enrolling in a bachelor’s program. Few of those are tabulated below:

UToronto Scholarship Benefit
University of Toronto Scholars Program 7,500 CAD
Karta Scholars Program Variable
U of T Engineering International Scholar Award Variable, maximum of 20,000 CAD (renewable for 3 years)
University of Toronto International Scholars Award 80,000 CAD- 1,80,000 CAD (over four years)
President’s Scholars of Excellence Program Entrance amount: 10,000 CAD;Part-time on-campus employment during II year

None of these University of Toronto Scholarships require applicants to submit an additional application form. Recipients will be selected based on admission applications. A student’s academic performance in high school and tests taken to study in Canadawill play a significant role.



University of Toronto Scholarships for Masters and Doctoral Students

UToronto Masters and Doctoral program students entering the university are expected to have a solid financial plan. Even though graduate international students are applying to the University of Toronto Scholarships, the admission-based scholarships are comparatively less.

As an incoming graduate student, international students are majorly offered financial aid awarded by the University of Toronto, donors, Ontario and Canadian Government, such as Ontario Graduate FellowshipOntario Trillium Scholarship, etc.

Some of the University of Toronto Scholarships offered, to international students, at the time of admission are:

Scholarship Name Benefit Level of Study Eligibility Application System
Connaught International Scholarship Varies Doctoral Attained A- average Nomination through department in Winter session
Delta Kappa Gamma World Fellowships 4,000 CAD Doctoral and Masters Female student; Not completing degree in 2021 Completion of online application before November 29
Mackenzie King Open & Travelling Scholarship 10,500 CAD Masters Minimum grade of “A” (85%, 3.85/4.00) Complete an online application before January 24
Dean’s Master of Information Scholarships 5,000 CAD Masters Enrolling in the Master of Information degree; A minimum GPA of A- (3.70/4.0) Admission application

Students seeking financial aid for their masters and doctoral programs must adhere to the scholarship deadlines mentioned by the university, as the late applications are not entertained.

The provision of a research stipend is also available at the University of Toronto. The research stipend offered to students enrolled in research master’s or Ph.D. programs at the University of Toronto is offered by the respective faculty of the university. The funding may cover one year of master’s study at the university and four-five years of the doctoral study.



External Scholarships Available for UToronto Students

Apart from the University of Toronto Scholarships, as mentioned earlier, international students can opt for scholarships offered by the Foundations and Canadian Government. Scholarships and fellowships which offer the students with substantial funding are:

  • Ontario Graduate Scholarship
  • Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship
  • Ontario Graduate Fellowship
  • Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation Doctoral Scholarships
  • Ontario Trillium Scholarship

The eligibility consideration, application process, and selection criteria vary for each one of these scholarship programs. Applicants planning to apply for these scholarships are kindly  advised to verify the same.
