Description

Description

The Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS) program aims to promote excellence in graduate studies at publicly-assisted universities in Ontario. The OGS program has been providing merit-based scholarships to Ontario’s best graduate students in all disciplines of academic study since 1975. The scholarship program at U of T is mutually financed by the Province of Ontario and the University of Toronto. The Province allocates OGS awards to universities requiring the number of awards that each may offer to their students every year.

Eligibilities

Eligibilities

Candidates must:

 

  • Be a Canadian national, Permanent Inhabitant, or Protected Person under subsection 95(2) of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (Canada) by the student deadline as determined by every graduate unit; Foreign students who are studying or plan to study at the University of Toronto under a provisional resident visa (student study permit) are qualified for a set number of OGS awards (legal study permits must be effective as of the graduate units’ OGS international application deadline);
  • Be registered or intend to register in an appropriate program on a full-time basis in 2021-22;
  • An appropriate program is definite as a full-time program of study of two or three sessions at the University of Toronto leading to a graduate degree. A full-time student is one who is in at least 60% of a full course load (40% for students with a permanent disability) or as defined by their organization.
  • Have not surpassed the maximum period of maximum OGS/QEII support or government-funded support available for their existing level of study (see Maximum Support below); and
  • Have achieved at least A- (or equivalent) in each of the last two completed years of study (full-time equivalent); or if the candidate has completed two years of graduate studies during application time, the student must only demonstrate a general average of at least A- (or equivalent) on all graduate courses accomplished.

 

Note: If marks used for calculating a candidate’s grade point average (GPA) are not existing (e.g., courses were graded on the basis of pass-fail), then the next most fresh existing undergraduate or graduate marks must be used to determine suitability.

 

Eligibility to Hold an OGS Award

 

To hold an OGS award, recipients:

 

  • Must register and remain enrolled as a full-time student at U of T in a qualified program at the graduate unit from which the OGS was granted;
  • Who withdraw, transfer to part-time status, complete degree requirements prior to their award concludes, or fail to complete the full session would be required to repay the capitals received for the partial session;
  • Must be in better standing with the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP). Candidates who have defaulted on a Canada or Ontario Student Loan, or are unsuccessful to make suitable repayment on a loan overpayment, are unqualified to accept the award. The ones with an OSAP restriction may still apply for the OGS. However, if granted, they must have the restriction cleared within one month of notification in order to receive the award;
  • May receive research assistantships, part-time teaching positions, or other compensated employment that does not affect their position as a full-time graduate student and is proportionate with the graduate unit guidelines. Characteristically, students holding full-time remunerated employment are not qualified to receive an OGS from the University of Toronto
  • Cannot hold an OGS award in a similar session (overlapping) or in the same award year as a scholarship from NSERC, CIHR, SSHRC, QEII-GSST, or another OGS.

 

 

Benefits

Benefits

The worth of the OGS is $5,000 per session. Therefore, awardees may receive $10,000 for two successive sessions or $15,000 for three successive sessions. In all cases, the bestowing graduate unit would contribute to one-third the cost of the entire award received by the students.

Application Process

Application Process

Candidates must submit an OGS application to their anticipated graduate unit using the U of T School of Graduate Studies centralized online OGS application. Each graduate unit would have its own interior submission deadline to which candidates must follow. Prior to applying, candidates should review the OGS Application Instructions.

 

Once finalized and submitted online, the whole application would be available to the anticipated graduate unit for appraisal and consideration.

 

Significant note for prospective students: OGS awards are not transferrable between graduate units at U of T and universities. So, candidates must submit an OGS application to every graduate unit for which they are seeking admission at U of T and to each Ontario institution if applying to numerous universities (each institution will have its own exclusive OGS application and procedure).

 

Significant note for visa students: Candidates holding a legal study permit by the graduate unit’s OGS international application deadline are qualified to apply following the similar application procedure and interior deadlines set by their existing or anticipated graduate unit. Graduate units would select and forward a limited number of applications to the School of Graduate Studies to compete in a centralized judgment.

 

Submission Requirements (All Apparatuses are Online)

 

OGS application form

 

Transcripts from all post-secondary institutes (informal and student-issued transcripts are allowable; e.g., ACORN screenshots).

 

Earlier publications/honors/conference/research experience.

 

Study plan (Maximum 2 pages (1 page for Plan of Study, 1 page for citations/references).

 

Two academic references (adjudicators would be required to submit online).

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

The eligibility criteria mentioned are only minimum requirements. Graduate units may enforce further criteria to apply, accept, or hold an OGS. Applicants must inquire with their graduate unit about any additional conditions to those listed here.
