University of Toronto
Scholars At Risk Award Program
Here at the University of Toronto, we are establishing a new bursary program for students and scholars at risk. Our goal is to raise $1 million and create up to 100 bursaries, each valued at $10,000, which we would disperse over the next 10 years. U of T will award the bursaries to undergraduate and graduate students who have obtained refugee status in Canada. The bursaries will be open to Syrian students and scholars at risk, but also other refugees who have had their education disrupted by conflict or war. We believe these bursaries will play a powerful role in helping these students and their families rebuild their lives in Canada.
