University of Toronto COVID 19 Grant

University of Toronto COVID 19 Grant

The COVID-19 Emergency Undergraduate Grant is intended to assist current U of T undergraduate domestic and international students impacted by COVID-19 and who need immediate short-term financial relief because of unexpected expenses. This grant is open to both part-time and full-time students.

Each request for emergency aid is considered on its own merits and based on need associated with an educational program and unexpected critical costs incurred by students as a direct result of COVID-19.  Expenses that may be considered include living costs, travel home, moving costs, technolgy and other extraordinary and reasonable needs.

The grant is not able to cover expenses that are unrelated to COVID-19 and existing debt obligations or non-essential expenses. Examples of ineligible expenses are tuition fees to U of T; request for summer tuition fees for courses taken elsewhere; support for partner or family expenses; expenses for MCAT preparatory course; mortgage or maintenance fees for secondary residence and other discretionary expenses (e.g., missed car payment, gym membership).

The COVID-19 Emergency Undergraduate Grant application for U of T students registered for the 2020 Summer term is now available.
