Scholarships, Awards & Bursaries

Applications are now being accepted for Fall/Winter 2016-2017 programs. Students must submit their Student Financial profile (SFP) by the following dates to be considered for the corresponding programs:

  • Scholarships and Awards program SFP Deadline: October 15, 2016
  • AMPD Awards Application Deadline: October 20, 2016 (if SFP completed by Oct 15th)

Step by Step Process for Applying to Awards, Scholarhships and Bursaries

Step #1 - Complete the Student Financial Profile

Student Financial Profile (SFP)

The Student Financial Profile will be assessed to determine if you have financial need which is a requirement for some of the listed awards and bursaries.

Do not forget to press send when you have completed your profile – saving your profile does not send it.

Very Important: If you do not press send Student Financial Services cannot assess your financial need and describes your financial need as “SFP Incomplete.”   You will then not be considered for any scholarships, bursaries or awards that have criteria requiring a student to demonstrate financial need.

DO NOT apply to AMPD awards on the SFS website. See Step # 2 to apply to AMPD awards

Step # 2 - Apply to AMPD Awards

AMPD Awards – Fall/Winter 2016-2017

Tips when completing the application form:

  • Include information that refers to the criteria of the award/scholarship/bursary
  • Be as detailed as possible if specific criteria is being requested
  • Use only one form to apply to ALL AMPD awards you are eligible for

The AMPD Awards Committee will adjudicate applications in December and successful candidates will be notified by email followed with a congratulatory letter from the Chair of the Awards Committee.


Department vs. Pan-Faculty Awards

Some awards are available to all AMPD students while others are department-specific. Please check the criteria in the award descriptions carefully before submitting an application.

Ontario Student Opportunity Trust Fund

All awards with OSOTF (Ontario Student Opportunity Trust Fund) criteria require completion of residency information which requires students to have Canadian citizenship or permanent residency or protected persons status and Ontario residency. If an award or scholarship is OSOTF dependant it will be outlined in the award criteria.
