It is expected that students will have also explored all sources of funding such as family support, savings and study period income, government assistance (e.g. OSAP) programs, daycare subsidies, and bank lines of credit as appropriate.

University of Toronto grants are not intended to fund non-educational expenses or to repay your debts.

Preparing to Receive Your Grant Payment

Grants will be applied to your financial account on ACORN to reduce your outstanding fees. If your fees have been paid in full at the time the grant is awarded, the balance of the grant will be issued via direct deposit to your personal bank account.

You must opt-in to the direct deposit option on ACORN and provide the university with your personal banking information. A valid mailing address on ACORN is also required.
