International Student Funding

U of T Engineering welcomes international grad students, both to our research and professional programs.  However, tuition for international students is higher than for Canadian students, and so we encourage applicants to apply for scholarships that can offset some or all of the cost of their education. To help with that, we’ve compiled the following list of scholarships for international grad students. The School of Graduate Studies at the U of T also maintains a list of International Student Awards.

We’d like to keep this list current. If you have any feedback for us: if any of these awards wouldn’t support engineering graduate studies in Canada, or if you know of other awards that we should list, please send an email to
