Bursary Program

A number of bursaries ranging from $500 to $5,000 are awarded to students in financial need. Trinity College bursaries are non-repayable awards designed to assist Trinity students who have explored all other avenues of financial assistance and who still demonstrate financial need.

Application deadlines are in January for fall-winter terms and mid-June for the summer term. A short interview will take place at that time to ensure that your application is complete and accurate.

Make sure to read the Trinity College Bursary Policy before completing an application.

Trinity College Bursary Application Summer 2020 is available online until June 19, 2020.

After submitting your application online, you must make a phone or online appointment with an advisor in the Office of the Registrar to finalize your application. You can schedule an appointment by e-mailing registrar@trinity.utoronto.ca.

  • Deadline to formally submit your application online: 4:00 pm, Friday, June 19, 2020
  • Deadline to finalize your application by online or phone appointment: 4:00 pm, Friday, July 3, 2020


Please note that undergraduate international and domestic students impacted by COVID-19  and who have unmet financial need with respect to their educational expenses can apply for a COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Grant for 2020 Summer.  This grant is open for part-time and full-time students registered in course(s) for 2020 summer.

Please also see the Funding Opportunity Directory if you are looking for additional financial support.


Coming to university is a significant financial undertaking. Students are encouraged to examine their entire financial picture carefully and to plan accordingly.
