Information on Financial Aid is available through the School of Graduate Studies website

The MUI Program is a professional course-based full-time graduate program with a co-op term and does not offer any funding or scholarships. At The University of Toronto, full or partial scholarship funding is generally only available for research-based programs and not Professional masters' programs, such as the MUI Program. However, new scholarships and awards are made available for students through the School of Graduate Studies on a regular basis. Please browse the Awards Explorer at UofT to find out more. 

Each year the MUI program offers a select number of entrance scholarships based on academic merit and/or financial aid. These are for both incoming international and domestic students. For merit-based scholarships, students will be automatically considered and no additional application is required.
