Scholarships

Financial aid for UC students helps to cover their tuition fees and other expenses, which increases their ability to focus on their studies and participate in extra-curricular activities on campus. Scholarships recognize academic excellence and may also take into account community involvement, leadership, creativity, and other qualities.

The University of Toronto guarantees that no student offered admission will be unable to attend due to financial circumstances. Thank you to all the alumni and friends who help make this possible.

Boundless Promise Program

As Canada’s leading public university, U of T has pledged that no qualified undergraduate will have to decline admission or withdraw from studies due to financial circumstances. Our donors have made this remarkable commitment possible.

The University of Toronto’s Boundless Promise Program provides needs-based scholarships to students and includes a matching component. 

When a donor makes such a gift, the contribution is invested in U of T’s endowment, which in turn generates a permanent annual payout for the student award. The University matches the payout 1:1, thus doubling the impact of the donation. These matching funds go above and beyond what the university already commits to student financial aid annually.

Create a Boundless Promise scholarship for UC students with a minimum pledge of $25,000 to be paid over a maximum of five years.  For more information, contact the UC Advancement Office at 416-978-3803.

University College Scholarships

Financial aid for UC students helps to cover their tuition fees and other expenses, which increases their ability to focus on their studies and participate in extra-curricular activities on campus. Scholarships recognize academic excellence and may also take into account community involvement, leadership, creativity, and other qualities. The University of Toronto guarantees that no student offered admission will be unable to attend and complete their degrees due to financial circumstances. Alumni and friends help to make this possible. In the 2017-2018 academic year, through the generosity of donors, University College provided financial awards and assistance to 1,290 students, a total value of $1,405,202.  Without the kindness and support of UC alumni and friends, this would not have been possible.
