Scholarships recognize excellence in a student’s studies. Each scholarship or award has specific criteria which may include program, level of study, community involvement, financial need etc.
Named Bursaries are awarded on the basis of students meeting the criteria outlined in the Named Bursary.
General Bursaries are awarded each semester. General Bursary applications are assessed based upon demonstrated financial need (student income and expenditures) and whether they have exhausted government funding.
To be eligible for a bursary, applicants must have demonstrated financial need and:
- Be a student in good academic standing;
- Enrolled in a full-time program;
- Be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada;
- Have accumulated government student financial debt;
- Have exhausted all OSAP opportunities/eligibility; and
- Complete ALL sections of the Bursary Application Form.
Each individual scholarship has its own set of criteria. For details, please refer to the main Scholarships and Awards page.
To apply, submit all supporting documents required by the award criteria by September 27 to the Registrar’s Office in one of the following ways:
Attention: Scholarships & Awards Committee
The Michener Institute for Education at UHN
222 St. Patrick Street
Toronto, ON M5T 1V
Drop off all documents at the Registrar’s Office on the 5th floor.
Some of the awards at Michener are granted by nomination only. Nominations are provided by Michener faculty, clinical coordinators, or program chairs, as specified in the individual description. Where an award criterion requires a nomination and letters of support, the letter of support cannot come from the original nominator.
There is no limit to the number of awards you can apply for and potentially receive. Review the listed criteria and be sure to meet the deadlines for each award.
Review the Application Requirements for each award and submit all of the required documents by the deadline.
Can I submit my application in multiple emails? For example, if I have completed the application page but haven’t received a letter of reference yet?
If you are submitting multiple emails, please be sure to reference materials to come or to reference original application in subsequent emails.
In most cases, recipients are selected by the Scholarships & Awards Committee, unless otherwise noted in the award description. The Scholarships & Awards Committee is made up of Michener donors, alumni and staff. The selection is based on each individual award criteria.
The deadline for both nominations and applications is September 27 every year.
Only the successful recipients will be contacted.
Students will be notified if they are a recipient and will be invited to the annual Student Awards Ceremony held in the Fall each year. Recipient will be announced there.
Soon after the Student Awards Ceremony, all award winners will be contacted with next steps to pick up their award or have it sent to them.
All recipients are encouraged to write a thank you note to the donor. Please forward your thank you to the Registrar’s Office at firstname.lastname@example.org
Yes, awards are considered part of a student’s taxable income for the year. Michener’s Finance Department will issue T4A forms to all recipients by the end of February, reflecting the value of the awards issued in the previous calendar year.
