Scholarships are available to Canadian students to assist with program fees for the Faculty of Medicine’s Youth Summer Program (MED YSP). Scholarships are awarded to students who demonstrate financial need and excellent academic merit.
The scholarship will allow the successful applicant to attend any of the four modules (Human Physiology, Molecular Biology and Genetics, Pharmacology & Toxicology, or Microbiology) for duration of one-week. Registration fee, academic content, accommodation, 3 meals/day, evening activities, and supervision are covered by the scholarship. Cost of transportation to and from Toronto is not included in the scholarship.
At this moment, we are unable to provide scholarships for the Research Module.
Additional scholarships are available to students who identify as Aboriginal (First Nations, Metis, Inuit, non-Status, etc.). Funding is available to subsidize cost of transportation to Toronto and can be applied for once accepted into the program.

Funding Opportunities for School Boards and Organizations
We are looking to work with organizations, school boards and education groups to provide more scholarships to high school students. A MED YSP scholarship gives students the opportunity to experience post-secondary education at Canada’s leading institution, breaks down walls on access to post-secondary resources for youth of low socioeconomic status, and motivates them to pursue a career in medicine.
