Pilot program to pay medical school application fees for students with financial need

July 16, 2021
A group called “Price of a Dream” has launched a program that will help Ontario students for whom medical school application costs would be a burden. The Ontario Medical School Application Fee Waiver Pilot Program will allow students to have processing and application fees waived for three Ontario medical schools of their choice. The pilot – which is in collaboration with the Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada, the Council of Ontario Faculties of Medicine, and the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre – is expected to save successful applicants between $500 and $1K. Applicants must provide tax information to prove need or can contact AFMC to discuss a unique financial situation. OUAC | The Star (ON)
