Carl Manning Prize
It was established in 1989 by Dr. Carl Manning's family, friends and colleagues. Dr. Manning’s sudden passing as a result of a traffic accident in the spring of 1978 was a shock to all. They chose to remember his enthusiasm for teaching Chemistry at Erindale College (former name of U of T Mississauga) by creating an award in his name.

This prize is awarded annually to the student with the highest average grade in CHM242H5 and CHM243H5 who is enrolled in one of the Specialist programs in Chemistry.

The Chemical Institute of Canada Toronto Section Book Prize
It was officially established at U of T Mississauga (formerly Erindale College) in 1979 by the Chemical Institute of Canada, to recognize scholarship at U of T Mississauga. The Chemical Institute of Canada is the major professional society for chemists and chemical engineers in this country and has been rewarding scholars for many years.

This award is given annually to a student who has completed 3rd year with high academic standing in a Major or Specialist program involving Chemistry. While the award may be given to the highest ranked student who is not concurrently receiving a CSC Silver Medal, remarkable academic improvement is also being considered.

The Canadian Society for Chemistry Silver Medal
It was established in this format at U of T Mississauga (formerly Erindale College) in 1979 by The Chemical Institute of Canada (CIC) to recognize scholarship at U of T Mississauga. The CIC is the major professional society for chemists and chemical engineers in this country and has been rewarding scholars for many years.

There are three Silver Medals, one each for a student in the Chemistry Specialist, the Biological Chemistry Specialist, and the Forensic Chemistry Specialist program.
Each award is given annually to a student who has completed 3rd year with the highest standing, as expressed in CGPA, in their respective specialist program.

The Igor Bolta Scholarship in Chemistry
It was established in 1983 by Dr. Igor Bolta, a graduate of Erindale College (now of U of T Mississauga) in 1972. Dr. Bolta continued to be an active member of the Erindale community long after his graduation. His sudden passing in the spring of 1984 was a shock to his family, friends and colleagues.

This award is presented annually to a full-time year II student in the Chemistry Major program with the highest average mark in CHM242H5 and CHM243H5.

The James J. Rae Chemistry Award
It was established in 1978 by family, friends and colleagues in memory of Dr James J. Rae. Dr. Rae was involved in the development of Erindale College (now the University of Toronto Mississauga) and served as its first Registrar from 1967 to 1975.

The Society of Chemical Industry Merit Award (Canadian Section)
The SCI Merit Award was originally established at U of T Mississauga (formerly Erindale college) in 1979 by The Society of Chemical Industry (SCI), Canadian Section, to recognize scholarship at U of T Mississauga. The SCI was established in England in 1881 "to advance applied chemistry in all its branches. To afford its members opportunities for the interchange of ideas with respect to improvements in the various chemical industries and for the discussion of all matter bearing upon the practice of applied chemistry and the publication of the information thereon.” (Quoted from the Society of Chemical Industry, Canadian Section Merit Awards brochure, 1979.)

There are three Merit Awards, one each for a student in the Chemistry Specialist, the Biological Chemistry Specialist, and the Forensic Chemistry Specialist program. Each award is presented annually to the student who has achieved the highest standing in the 4th and final year in one of the above listed  Chemistry programs, as expressed in their CGPA.
