Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Graduate & Postdoctoral Studies

Bright Minds. Talent Masters.

Students drive leading research, innovation and scholarly advancement. Our university is home to more than 800 graduate and postdoctoral students — a high achieving pool of specialized talent destined to become tomorrow’s leaders. They tackle society’s most difficult problems and are uniquely qualified to create new devices, processes and technologies that lay the foundation for future generations of products and practices.

To support our exceptional students in their research, we work with our donors to fund initiatives like the Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS) and the Queen Elizabeth II Graduate Scholarship (QEII GSST).

These programs encourage excellence by providing merit-based scholarships to Ontario’s best graduate students. Under these programs, a $5,000 contribution to support master’s and doctoral students will leverage an additional $10,000 in provincial government funds, tripling the value of the award to $15,000.
