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.

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. Information for the 2023-2024 application cycle is now available. Due to the number of awards in this category, there are charts within our webpage that list all awards, their eligibility criteria, and approximate values.

Note that two of these awards are specifically for students who live/have lived in — and demonstrated leadership in — the Innis Residence. Details on the M. “Fuzz” Friend Memorial Award and the Taddle Creek Residence Life Award can be found in the award chart available on the wepage for returning and graduating students.
