SGS Bursaries for Junior Fellows at Massey College

Award Overview

Required Legal Status

Domestic or International

Purpose

The School of Graduate Studies is pleased to provide funding for bursaries, developed in collaboration with Massey College, which is a graduate students’ residential community affiliated with, but independent from, the University of Toronto. Designed for Black Canadian, Indigenous, and International grad students, these bursaries create opportunities that can provide academic and personal enrichment for high-achieving graduate students who would not be able to afford the fees associated with Junior Fellowship.

In joining Massey College, recipients will be welcomed into a community of scholars and professionals from across Canada and around the world.
