U of T Bursaries Eligibility
The most common type of bursary is the need-based bursary, which is awarded based on financial need. Other types of bursaries include merit-based bursaries, which are awarded based on academic achievement, and community-based bursaries, which are awarded to students who are actively involved in their communities. The amount of each bursary varies, but all bursaries are helpful in offsetting the cost of tuition, books, and other educational expenses.
It is expected that before you apply for a grant, you will have explored all sources of funding such as OSAP or other government assistance programs, family support, savings from summer employment, part-time employment or a bank line of credit.
To be eligible for a bursary, look at the criteria listed for each bursary on the U of T Financial Aid webpage.
