In-Course Scholarships & ePortfolio
All registered U of T Engineering students are considered for scholarships after each academic year. While some scholarships are based on academic achievement, others have additional criteria. The Online Engineering Portfolio (ePortfolio) is a place where you can record your extra-curricular activities and store your resume.
The Faculty's Scholarships Committee uses the information in the ePortfolio to assist them in selecting recipients for awards that take extra-curricular activities and leadership qualities into consideration and to identify potential candidates for awards outside of the Faculty.
Additionally, U of T Engineering has scholarships and awards that support Black students, Indigenous students and students registered with Accessibility Services. The ePortfolio provides you with the opportunity to self-identify to be considered for these awards (regardless of extra-curricular involvement) if you would like to do so. While self-identification is not required to complete the ePortfolio, self-disclosure of identity is required to be considered for these specific scholarships and awards.
The ePortfolio will be turned off at 11:59 p.m. (ET) on June 7 in order to prepare for scholarship decisions made in mid-July. Don’t delay, complete or update your ePortfolio now!
U of T Award Explorer
U of T's new Award Explorer tool can help you explore the diverse U of T funding opportunities that recognize your achievements and financially support your studies.
For Faculty and departmental scholarships listed in Award Explorer, the “application required” is the completion of the Faculty's ePortfolio; to complete your ePortfolio, visit the Engineering Portal. Any award that requires a separate application is listed below and will include a link to additional information.
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.
