Experiential Learning Bursaries 2019-20

Following our successful launch of the Experiential Learning (EL) Bursaries program last year, the Experiential Education Unit (EEU) is pleased to announce that the Office of the Vice-Principal, Academic and Dean will once again make bursaries available to students enrolled in eligible EL courses offered over the Summer 2019, Fall 2019, and Winter 2020 academic terms. 

Experiential Learning Bursaries for Students

We hope that the availability of these bursaries will continue to grow interest in EL courses and reduce barriers to participation by alleviating some of the added costs incurred by students (such as ancillary fees, equipment, and travel), advancing our goal of making EL opportunities available to all students at UTM. Different from last year, the EL Bursaries program for 2019-20 will be facilitated by application. Only students with demonstrated financial need will be considered for a bursary.

Bursary amounts are determined by the EEU with respect to the specific demands of the EL activities offered in the course, as per the information provided on the course syllabus and/or in consultation with the course’s instructor. Students will be notified via e-mail once the bursaries have been distributed and be asked to fill out a self-assessment survey as part of the process.

Students with accessibility concerns are recommended to consult with Accessibility Services on campus to evaluate their needs before applying for an EL Bursary. The EEU will work closely with the Office of the Registrar, Accessibility Services, the Equity & Diversity Office, and the Indigenous Centre to ensure that the EL Bursaries program fulfills the University of Toronto’s pledge to “remove a range of barriers and support our community members in fulfilling their academic, research and employment goals.”

If you have any questions about the EL Bursaries program for 2019-20, please do not hesitate to reach out to Adriano Pasquali (Research Analyst, Academic Programs & Experience) at adriano [dot] pasquali [at] utoronto [dot] ca. We hope that the availability of EL Bursaries for the upcoming year will encourage you to consider participating in the EL opportunities offered at UTM as you begin enrolling in courses this month.
