Implementation of U of T’s Indigenous Tuition Initiative at the Rotman School of Management

April 25, 2024

As announced in September 2023, the University of Toronto will cover the cost of tuition for students from nine First Nations as part of its efforts to make the university more accessible and inclusive for Indigenous students – and strengthen relationships with Indigenous communities.

The initiative will support members of First Nations communities whose territories include or are adjacent to U of T’s campuses. They are: Alderville First Nation, Curve Lake First Nation, Hiawatha First Nation, Nation Huronne-Wendat/Huron-Wendat First Nation, Mississauga First Nation, Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation, Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte (Tyendinaga Mohawk) and Six Nations of the Grand River.

The Rotman School of Management is making the Indigenous Tuition Grant available to the following OSAP-approved Rotman degree programs:

  • Full-Time MBA
  • Morning/Evening MBA
  • Master of Finance
  • Master of Financial Risk Management
  • Master of Management Analytics

Other Rotman programs are not eligible for the grant.

In addition, as offered at U of T, Indigenous or Native American students from the continental United States coming to the Rotman School of Management will be charged the domestic Ontario tuition rate in recognition of the Jay Treaty of 1794, which acknowledges the colonial nature of the border between the U.S. and Canada.

Indigenous students living elsewhere in Canada have been eligible for U of T’s domestic Ontario student tuition rate since May 2022. This is also available to Rotman School of Management students.

The initiatives are part of a number of programs and initiatives available to Indigenous students as part of U of T’s commitment to increasing access and support services.

For other questions, students are encouraged to contact the Rotman Recruiting and Admissions team for the program they are interested in.
