Scholarships and awards for international students

Global Leadership Award

If you are an international secondary school student entering an undergraduate program at UOIT on a study permit, and are currently studying outside of Canada, you can apply for UOIT's Global Leadership Award (GLA).

The GLA scholarship is one of UOIT's most prestigious entrance awards. Valued at $72,000 ($18,000 a year for four years), the GLA recognizes international secondary school applicants with strong academic and leadership abilities. Canadian citizens and permanent residents are not eligible for the GLA.

Interested applicants must complete a GLA scholarship application form, which is available through the UOIT Admissions Portal. Download step-by-step instructions for completing your scholarship application.

Awards of recognition 

These awards recognize academic accomplishments for recent Canadian secondary school graduates. If you are an international student who studied at an on-shore secondary school in Canada, you may be eligible to receive an award. The following amounts are automatically awarded in your first year based on your best six 4U/4M courses (or equivalent).

  • $4,000 - 95 per cent or higher
  • $3,000 - 90 to 94.9 per cent
  • $2,000 - 85 to 89.9 per cent

In-course scholarships 

We want to recognize your academic achievements during your undergraduate studies. If you have achieved a minimum 3.7 GPA (on a 4.3 scale) during the previous year and you are returning to full-time study, you will be automatically awarded a scholarship and notified through your UOITnet email.

  • $2,000 - GPA of 4.0 or higher
  • $1,500 - 3.7 - 3.99 GPA

These scholarships may be increased through the generous contributions from our UOIT donors to $3,000 and $4,000.
