Graduate Studies: Financial Aids and Awards

OSOTF Awards

The Ontario Student Opportunity Trust Fund (OSOTF) is a series of awards which have resulted from the Ontario government’s “matching” program. In general, OSOTF awards are restricted to residents of Ontario who demonstrate financial need. For the purpose of OSOTF awards, an Ontario resident is either a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada who has an Ontario mailing address at the time the award is made. Financial need can be demonstrated by applying for OSAP or by completing the financial aid assessment form. In addition to the financial and residence requirements, there may be specific eligibility criteria for each OSOTF award.
