The School of Graduate Studies Inclusive Excellence Admissions Scholarships for Master’s Students aims to diversify academia by supporting the recruitment of underrepresented groups, specifically first-year Black and Indigenous master’s students to PhD-stream programs (i.e. MA, MSc, MSW, MEd, MPH, and other research and professional programs that are commonly a stepping-stone to a UofT PhD program).
These Scholarships are an SGS initiative developed in response to recommendations emerging from the Weecheehetowin Final Report of the Steering Committee for the University of Toronto Response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, The Anti-Black Racism Task Force Final Report, and the Scarborough Charter to increase graduate school opportunities for Black and Indigenous applicants whose paths to academia include significant accomplishments that may not be included in conventional graduate admission criteria.
