Scholarship Opportunities

Scholarship for Indigenous Students

The Faculty of Law at the University of Toronto has long recognized that Indigenous people are underrepresented in the legal profession and seeks to increase the number of Indigenous lawyers and judges across the country. To that end, we are excited to announce the first Law Youth Summer Program Scholarship for Indigenous High School Students in partnership with the Indigenous Initiatives Office.

First Nation, Métis and Inuit high school students with an interest in exploring the legal profession and Canadian law in the areas of criminal law, law and politics, trial advocacy, corporate law and international law are invited to apply before Monday May 31. Please note that the program will be delivered online synchronously and that Indigenous law and legal traditions will not be taught.
