Now in its fourth year, The Toronto Insurance Conference (TIC) is proud to offer the first ever university scholarships for applicants sponsored by TIC brokers, partners and staff, as well as other applicants who intend on a career in an insurance brokerage.

The Scholarship Program

Managed by the Insurance Institute of Ontario, the TIC Scholarship Program annually offers financial assistance in the form of up to three (3) $5,000 scholarships to eligible applicants pursuing full-time university undergraduate studies in Canada.

Selection is based on academic excellence throughout the applicant’s high school and first year post-secondary career, as well as financial need, contribution to school, community life and/or other meaningful pursuits, major accomplishments and a strong indication of academic promise.

Eligibility Criteria

To be eligible, an applicant must meet the following criteria:

 1.  Applicants must be either:

 2. Applicants must be entering their second year or higher into a recognized, full-time university undergraduate degree program in Canada.
 3. Applicants must be registered for a full course load in such university degree program and maintain continuous full-time studies during the academic year.

The split of the three scholarships awarded annually to recipients applying under each of the two criteria options are at the discretion of the Toronto Insurance Conference.
