The Ontario International Education Opportunity Scholarship

Please be aware that the Ontario International Education Opportunity Scholarship (OIEOS) will be discontinued for the 2012-2013 academic year and onward. The Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities announced in the 2012 Ontario Budget that there would be targeted reductions across Ministries to meet Ontario’s plan of balancing the budget by 2017-2018. As a result, targeted programs were selected to help meet this commitment.

“Since 2006/2007, the OIEOS has been well received by both students and institutions, making it a very difficult decision to discontinue funding. However, the Ministry is proud to have helped provide more than $16 million in support over the last six years,” Kenny Li Cheong Man, MTCU.

Over 6,500 scholarships were awarded to Ontario students to study abroad during the six-year period that OIEOS has been available.

Unfortunately there aren’t awards available for every program. However we do have “open” awards that are open to students in any program. To search for these, select “awards open to all programs” under the program listing on the search page. You can narrow this search down by selecting your level of study, academic area or even campus.

The awards and scholarships website is constantly being updated. There are new awards with new expiry dates being listed all the time so be sure to check this website regularly. Don’t procrastinate, because you might miss a deadline!

It is always a great time to start putting together your documents for awards and scholarships. Typically you will be asked to provide the following: letter of reference, resumé, grade reports and cover letter. It is a really good idea to be prepared in advance because the perfect opportunity might arise for you at any time.

Small details can make a big difference in whether or not your application stands out.

  • Make sure your reference letters and resumé are of the same quality that you would use to land a job interview.
  • Write clearly. Be concise. Check spelling. Ask a peer or superior to proofread all of your documents.
  • Make certain your application and documentation address the specific requirements of the award.
  • Ensure you have provided all of the requested information and attach all documents required to your application. Leaving off pertinent information by accident can result in disqualification.

The amount of time and energy you put into searching out and applying for awards and scholarships is up to you. However, the more effort you make, the better your chances of becoming a winner. And most importantly, don’t get discouraged if you don’t win. Make the strongest case you can, and simply try again.
