Black Graduate Student Bursary

The Black Graduate Student Awards are a suite of awards and bursaries established by the Yeates School of Graduate Studies to support Black students pursuing graduate studies at Toronto Met. These awards recognize excellence and/or alleviate some of the financial burden associated with graduate education. 

Applications are now open. Apply via Award Spring (opens in new window) .

The expendable funds will provide bursaries between $1,000 and $5,000, as funds allow annually. Funding for the award will be confirmed in March of each year and made available to eligible students in the fall. Results will be announced in mid-September.
