Admission scholarships for first-year students

Scholarships not requiring an application will be decided by the Awards Committee, based on academic performance in premedical studies. All incoming medical students will automatically be considered for these awards.

For those awards with financial need as a criterion, unmet need, as assessed by the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) or the University of Toronto Advanced Planning for Students (UTAPS), will be used to determine level of need.

Not all scholarships are available in every year.
