Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS)

The Ontario Graduate Scholarship Program recognizes academic excellence in graduate studies at the master's and doctoral levels in all disciplines of academic study. The OGS program at U of T is jointly funded by the Province of Ontario and the University of Toronto. The Province of Ontario provides about $30 million towards these scholarships and eligible institutions provide $15 million.

The value of the OGS is $5,000 p​er term. Thus, awardees may receive $10,000 for two consecutive terms or $15,000 for three consecutive terms. In all instances, the awarding graduate unit will contribute to one third the cost of the total award received by the students.

Each scholarship is tenable for a minimum of one year (i.e., two consecutive or three academic terms) up to a maximum of two years (six academic terms)​. The value and duration of each OGS award will be determined by the awarding graduate unit and detailed in the offer letter.
