Application Forms

At Innis, most scholarships requiring an application are based on leadership — awards that recognize extracurricular engagement and commitment. You can find award info and application instructions within each application form at the bottom of this page. Additionally, a listing of all Innis awards can be found on Award Explorer, U of T’s centralized, searchable database for everything from admission to in-course to graduating awards.

Admission leadership awards

These four awards are for prospective and incoming new students. You may apply for an admission leadership award before you know if you have been admitted to the U of T. Learn more with this info sheet

Leadership awards for returning and graduating students

These awards are for currently registered students who will be returning in the upcoming academic year, and students who are graduating in the upcoming June ceremony or who graduated the previous November. Due to the number of awards in this category, there are charts within this application form that list all possible awards, their eligibility criteria, and values. Learn more with this info sheet.

Note that two of these awards are specifically for students who live/have lived in — and demonstrated leadership in — Innis Residence. Details on the M. “Fuzz” Friend Memorial Award and the Taddle Creek Residence Life Award are also in the aforementioned chart.
