The School of the Environment offers a number of scholarships and awards, awarded each fall, based on student achievement up until the end of the previous academic year (i.e. end of summer 2020). Some of the scholarships take into account demonstrated financial need in the previous academic year.
Scholarships Requiring an Application
Applicants for most of these scholarships must have been registered in a program at the School during the previous academic year (i.e. the 2019-20 academic year), and still be registered in a program at the School in the current academic year (i.e. the 2020-21 academic year, with the following exceptions:
- The Pimlott Entrance Scholarship and the Barbara Green Scholarship in Environmental Entrepreneurship are entrance scholarships—applicants must have first enrolled in a program at the School in the current academic year, 2020-21.
- The Pimlott Graduating Scholarship is only available to students who graduated in November, 2019 or June, 2020.
- The Catherine J. Riggall Award for Contributions to Sustainability is available to all U of T undergraduate students.
The Faculty sets a guideline minimum CGPA of 3.2 for scholarships. However, the School will consider applications from students whose CGPA is below 3.2, but whose most recent annual GPA is 3.2 or higher.
