Tuition and Bursary Support
UTS has one of the largest bursary support programs among independent schools in Canada. Last year, $2 million was awarded to 14 percent of students, covering between five percent to 100 percent of tuition.

UTS partners with Apple Financial Services to process bursary support requests. In complete confidentiality, Apple Financial Services closely reviews all financial details and provides an analysis of a family’s ability to contribute toward educational expenses. It then submits its recommendations to UTS. These recommendations include:a recommendation with respect to the amount of financial award.
- Financial assistance bursaries are based exclusively on need as determined by a confidential review of a family’s financial details by Apple Financial Services. Families who are interested in applying will receive information about the Apple Financial application if they are invited to participate in Stage 2 of the UTS Application Process.
- Families are required to provide full financial disclosure, including a Canada Revenue Agency Notice of Assessment. Incomplete documentation may result in withdrawal of assistance.
- All families requiring financial assistance must apply annually and students receiving financial assistance must remain in good standing throughout their careers at UTS, attend school regularly, and abide by both the Code of Conduct, as stated in the UTS Student/Parent Handbook, and the school's Policy of Mutual Respect. Returning bursary students receive at least the same bursary support compared to the prior year, given a similar financial situation.
Applying for financial assistance does not impact your application to UTS. The admission decisions and the financial assistance decisions are made independently.
- UTS requires that all published deadlines be met by the bursary applicant.
- Applicants must submit the required documentation from both parents, unless they are deceased.
University of Toronto Schools:
- Is committed to accessibility for all students who are admitted to UTS.
- Recognizes the financial constraints upon those who qualify.
- Will allocate available funds using a process that is consistent, equitable and strives to match available funds to need as closely as practical each year.
- Will aim to increase available bursary funds commensurate with the increase in tuition.
- Will draw bursary funds from the UTS Foundation and the “top up” funds raised through annual giving.
- Engages Apple Financial Services to provide analysis and recommend financial assistance; the UTS Bursary Committee places significant reliance on the recommendations made by Apple Financial, however, the Committee makes all decisions about the actual amounts of assistance offered.
- Requests each family offer to pay as large a portion of tuition as they are genuinely able to.
- Ensures that applications for financial assistance are reviewed and evaluated independently from admission applications.
- Is committed to the assessment of financial need based on three categories of criteria:
- Primary criteria (includes income and net worth).
- Secondary criteria (includes number of children, childcare costs, other UTS students and dependents).
- Tertiary criteria (includes vacation, camps, lessons, sports/arts (recognize international competitors as a special category), transport to school, age and type of work performed by parents, and discretionary spending).
- Will grant bursaries ranging from 5% of tuition fee to full bursary support, including the enrolment fee for new students.
I found mentors in my teachers, students and alumni from UTS – people who took me under their wing and I truly felt like I was part of a community that would lift me up. It didn't really matter where I came from.UTS Student and Bursary Recipient
I absolutely would not have been able to go to UTS without the bursary program. It opened a lot of doors. It means a lot for me to be able to give back to the community.UTS Student and Bursary Recipient
I feel as if I have grown up here... I wouldn’t be who I am today without my experiences here. All this was possible (and continues to be possible) because of the generosity of people like you.UTS Student and Bursary Recipient
