Offered upon admission to selected outstanding international students on the basis of merit. Financial need may be considered. Students are automatically considered for this award. The value of the award is equal to the cost of international tuition, including tuition fees, incidental fees and UHIP fees for four consecutive years, or until degree completion, whichever comes first. Residence fees are not included under this award.

Terms & Conditions

This award is for four consecutive academic years (Fall/Winter terms) and the total award value is indicated on your JOIN U of T portal.

This award is not tenable with any other admission award offered by the University of Toronto.

This award is conditional on:

  • Completion of your secondary school program with high academic standing and fully satisfying the conditions of your offer of admission to the Faculty of Arts & Science at the University of Toronto. The Faculty reserves the right to withdraw this award offer if these conditions are not satisfied.
  • Full-time registration in eight consecutive Fall/Winter terms and completion of at least 3.0 credits by the end of each Fall/Winter session. An exception is made for students registered with Accessibility Services with a reduced course load accommodation. Credits earned during Summer sessions and transfer credits are not considered. Summer session tuition fees are not included under this award. 
  • Registration as an international student (i.e. a non-Canadian requiring a study permit) in the Faculty of Arts & Science. International students charged domestic fees are not eligible.
  • Registration in the Faculty of Arts & Science, St. George campus. As this award is funded by the Faculty of Arts & Science, St. George campus, it is not transferable to other campuses or faculties.  
  • Registration in a regulated fee program within Humanities, Social Sciences, Life Sciences or Math & Physical Sciences. De-regulated academic programs including Rotman Commerce, Computer Science, Data Science and Bioinformatics & Computational Biology are not eligible in any year. 

 Award renewal is based on your academic performance and compliance with the Terms & Conditions as outlined above following your first, second and third year of study (consecutive). While renewal is not tied to a specific minimum grade point average, we expect that your high academic achievement will continue and that you remain “in good standing” as defined by the Faculty of Arts & Science. The award may be withdrawn due to unsatisfactory academic performance. 

In addition to the monetary award, recipients of the Arts & Science Global Scholarship are entitled to early course enrolment during their first year of study. Having early access enables students to enrol in courses ahead of peers in their first year of study only. 


The annual award value will be applied to your student account in two installments after your full-time registration in an eligible program is confirmed. The first installment will be made in November and the second installment will be made in February. Recipients of this award are eligible for a tuition fee deferral (registration without payment). Further details regarding tuition deferrals will be communicated to recipients annually in August prior to the registration deadline. 

Withdrawal or Transfer to Part-Time

You are required to inform the Office of the Faculty Registrar, Arts & Science before dropping below full-time status, withdrawing from your studies or if there is a change in your legal status. Students who withdraw or who substantially reduce their course load during the academic year may be required to repay all or part of their award. An exception is made for students registered with Accessibility Services with a reduced course load accommodation.
