Apply for the “Lester B. Pearson International Scholarships” for undergraduates in Canada. This scholarship is usually awarded annually, this scholarship provides full funding for outstanding international students with exceptional academic achievements to study at the University of Toronto for up to 4years.
Coverage The scholarship will cover tuition, books, incidental fees & accommodation for 4yrs. It’s only tenable at the University of Toronto for first-entry undergraduates. Slots available This is a global scholarship. Each year, about 37 students will be selected.
In 2021, 2 were selected from Nigeria and less than 10 from Africa.
Note: This scholarship is for students resuming by FALL 2023, with applications starting later this year. Students resuming this year have already applied.
This is an annual scholarship & that requires students to be;
• an international student.
• currently in your final year of secondary school or have graduated no earlier than June 2022 (for FALL 2023 resumption)- I picked this date from last year’s cycle.
For the last application period, June 2021 was stated for FALL 2022 resumption; I am assuming the same will apply this year (again, that is my calculation, I do not work for them).
• Starting your studies (for the first time) at the University of Toronto in September 2023
The step-by-step application process for Lester B. Pearson International Scholarships
To apply, you must be nominated by your home school & then apply to your preferred undergraduate program at the University of Toronto. For nomination, you need to ask your school counselor about being nominated.
Once you’ve been nominated by your school and have applied to the University of Toronto for admission, you will be invited using a personalized, secure link to apply for the Lester B. Pearson International Scholarship application.
To recap the application process,
1. You need to receive a nomination from your home school (once the application opens, you should send this link to your school to contact UofT and request verification to nominate you- www3.adm.utoronto.ca/Pearson/school
N.B – you can apply for multiple programs at UofT, but you will only be considered (for the Scholarship) for your first choice of program at U of T. 3. Once they receive your nomination and you’ve applied to the university, you will be invited to complete the online Lester B. Pearson Scholarship application.
Scholarship Deadlines (predicted for FALL 2023)
• Nomination deadline: Nov 30, 2022
• Student OUAC application deadline: Dec 14, 2022 (I encourage you to apply a month in advance, some programs may close earlier than the normal deadline)
• Scholarship application deadline: Jan 17, 2023
Again, please note – no application fee for this scholarship. The only fee you may need to pay is school admission (I’m not aware of a waiver). So, while you are waiting for the scholarship to start for the next app period, please write your WAEC exam & start volunteering.
If you want, you can write the exam again to be competitive. Admission to UofT is HIGHLY competitive. The profile of usually admitted students is mostly all A’s students. So, please let your result be straight A’s (or write A-level if they accept it).
Nominations usually start around September. So, inform your High school to get prepared to nominate you by that time. Each school can only nominate one student per scholarship round- so your school must be sure they’re nominating the best.
I hope I have explained everything, please feel free to ask questions. Forward it to high school students and let them benefit. The scholarship’s official website is- future.utoronto.ca/pearson/about/
