utmONE Scholars Seminar - Application Form for 2022-23

Deadline to Apply - June 20, 2022 11:59 pm EST


Application to the utmONE Scholars seminars is by invitation.  If you have not received an invitation to apply, but believe that you are eligible (an incoming CGPA of 90% or above) please contact utm.one@utoronto.ca.  All utmONE Scholars seminars occur in the Winter Term (January-April).  Successful applicants will be contacted prior to first-year course enrolment.

Applicants must complete the student information section, answer the required question, and answer the application questions for both your first and second-choice of utmONE Scholars seminar.

You do not need to do any formal research to answer these questions; however, if you do quote or paraphrase another source please be sure to cite the source.  We are seeking to understand your interest in the topic, what your thoughts and insights are on the topic, and to get a sense of what you want to learn.  Your answers should be thoughtful and indicate that you have engaged with the question beyond a surface level.  Generally, one sentence would not be enough, but please try to keep your answers to a maximum of 250 words.  That said, if you do go over by a few words so that your answer fully captures your thoughts, this will not count against you.  Applications will be reviewed by the professors for the seminars and by the Academic Success Strategist who coordinates the utmONE Scholars program.

If you have any questions, please contact Rebecca Shaw, Academic Success Strategist, at utm.one@utoronto.ca 

We look forward to reading your application!
