Scholarships, Awards, and Bursaries

These pages contain information about scholarships and awards for which MLIS students may be eligible. The accordion list is arranged by category, and some awards may appear under multiple categories. Scholarships and awards administered by the School are included in this list. Students are responsible for identifying and applying to all scholarships and awards. SLIS will notify students of upcoming award opportunities via the student listserv. 

The School makes most scholarships and awards decisions by June 1st. Students are encouraged to seek out opportunities for scholarships/awards and to apply for these prior to and during the course of their program.

Please note that not all scholarships, prizes and awards may be offered or awarded every year. Amounts listed are in Canadian dollars (CAD) unless otherwise specified. The value and number of awards and scholarships are determined yearly and may increase or decrease.
