Registered engineering students are considered for scholarships after each academic year. While some scholarships are based on academic achievement, others have additional criteria.
Ensure your Online Engineering Portfolio is current and complete. The Scholarships Committee uses information in the portfolio to select awards recipients.
Additionally, the “Scholarships and Financial Aid” chapter of the Academic Calendar lists available Faculty scholarships.
Admissions and In-Course Scholarship Payments
If awarded, both in-course and admissions scholarships are typically paid in the Fall Session once the student is officially registered.
If a student is receiving a scholarship that is greater than their minimum payment to register they are eligible to defer their fees. The student must submit a Fee Deferral Form to the Office of the Registrar (GB 157) or to email@example.com prior to or on the last day to pay or defer fees for the session.
The 2016-2017 Fee Deferral Form will be available in mid-July.
Ontario Student Opportunity Trust Fund (OSOTF) Awards
Eligible candidates must be Canadian citizens or permanent residents and demonstrate financial need. Additionally, prior to starting a post-secondary program, candidates must have lived in Ontario for twelve consecutive months.
Financial need is most easily demonstrated with receipt of OSAP for the current year. Other examples of financial need will be considered.
For admission OSOTF awards, it is crucial that applicants complete the UTAPS application to indicate financial need.
International or out-of-province students are not eligible for OSOTF awards.

External Scholarships, Awards and Grants
Human Resources Canada provides students with valuable information about financing a university education. The site also allows students to add their names to a database that notifies them of awards they may be eligible for.
The Faculty also uses the information in the Online Engineering Portfolio to assist in identifying potential candidates for external awards.
Current external scholarship opportunities will be posted as received.
