Queer Orientation (QO) is an annual series of LGBTQ2S-focused programming across all three campuses of U of T during the last week of September. QO is an opportunity for new and returning students, staff, faculty and librarians to make connections, engage in activities and have discussions related to LGBTQ2S+ communities.
This year, Queer Orientation runs from September 20–24, 2021, and features game nights, drag make-up tutorials, informational sessions, ice skating, escape rooms and more! Be sure to read the full schedule because there is definitely something for everyone. #UofTQO

The Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD) Program offers funding support for students who wish to gain academic or professional experience in Germany. U of T has an internal review process for the following graduate programs:
DAAD Study Scholarship: If you are in your final year of undergraduate studies, you may receive a scholarship for:
- a full Master’s degree at a German University, or
- to complete course work at a German University towards your Master’s degree at U of T
DAAD Research Grant (one year): if you have completed a Master’s degree at U of T or are currently enrolled in a PhD program at U of T, you may receive a grant to pursue a research project in Germany for 7-10 months.
This information session will cover the application process for the program as well as the opportunities available to students through the DAAD scholarship. In addition, we will cover U of T’s internal nomination process for students who are interested in being nominated for consideration as well.
