Black Graduate Student Excellence Bursary

The Black Graduate Student Excellence Bursary was created by the UTGSU in partnership with the University of Toronto School of Graduate Studies (SGS) to provide financial support to help improve fair and equitable access to educational opportunities for Black students commencing graduate studies at the University of Toronto. It recognizes that talent and excellence thrive in Black communities and that providing fair and equitable access to educational opportunities acknowledges the creativity, leadership capacity and gifted nature of Black students.

Up to 15 $2,000 need-based bursaries will be awarded annually and serve to provide added financial support to help offset the costs associated with academic endeavours in the first year of study. The bursary will be offered and held by students in addition to any other financial aid or graduate funding they may receive (OSAP, major awards, or graduate funding).

All applications in their entirety will be processed and adjudicated by the UTGSU so please submit your entire package to bgseb@utgsu.ca EXCEPT the financial form.
