Each year, the Rotman School grants entrance scholarships, fellowships and awards to approximately one third of our students. These are offered on the basis of exceptional merit and typically range from $10,000 to half tuition. No separate award application is required and you will be automatically considered for these awards when your application is reviewed for admission.
The Rotman School offers a number of scholarships, fellowships and awards to students who have completed the first year of their MBA program. Administered through the Program Services Office, the call of applications (where required) takes place at the end of the Spring Term each year. Most are available to both domestic and international students on the basis of academic merit, while some also consider financial need
The Rotman School offers an academic mentorship program for first-year core courses. Upper-year MBA students with an excellent academic record in a particular course and demonstrated communication skills will be selected to provide academic guidance and support to first-year students. Applications for Rotman Scholar Awards are available at the end of the Spring Term each year.
Rotman Team Coach Awards have been established to recognize achievement and allow MBA students to both demonstrate and enhance their leadership skills by providing coaching and mentorship to the first year MBA project teams. These opportunities are uniquely suited to upper-year students who have experienced the core MBA team experience and therefore have an understanding of the challenges and opportunities that students face in the Rotman MBA core set of courses.
Team Coaches are selected on the basis of strong communication and leadership skills, a demonstrated understanding of team processes and a belief in the value of teams.
Applications for Rotman Team Coach Awards are available at the end of the Spring Term each year.

The Skoll BASc/MBA program is supported by the generous contributions of the Jeffrey Skoll Foundation and the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC). These gifts, gratefully received by the University, were matched through a Government of Ontario program called Ontario Students Opportunity Trust Fund (OSOTF).
These scholarships are awarded to students in the BASc/MBA program in the Rotman School who have displayed high academic merit in their first three years of Engineering studies and who have a high level of leadership potential. Additional preference will be given to students who demonstrate financial need.
Eligible students may receive a Skoll scholarship which helps to defray the difference between tuition fees in the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering and those at the Rotman School of Management. A further award from the CIBC scholarship may be available to eligible students, the amount of which varies from year to year depending upon the number of recipients.
Applications are submitted to the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering.
Students with a PhD in a health-related field and wishing to pursue an MBA as their next step to a career supporting innovation in Canada should consider the S2B scholarship. This initiative is a partnership with Canadian business schools to encourage individuals with PhDs in a health-related discipline to pursue an MBA. It is anticipated that graduates of S2B-supported MBAs will pursue careers in research, management, regulatory affairs, public policy, patent law, and other specialties required to improve capacity and performance of commercialization and innovation. The long-term goal of this program is to develop a cadre of entrepreneurs and venture capitalists knowledgeable in health research and business management and foster an entrepreneurial culture within the research community.
