Andrew Yin, scholarship recipient
Coming into Innis and Urban Studies as a transfer student and someone who was still struggling with my identity, the awards not only provided me with financial support, but also, more importantly, moral encouragement to keep delving into the fascinating field of urban studies, which led to two great internship opportunities during my undergraduate years. They also formed a part of my sense of belonging at Innis College, which is a feeling I’m very grateful to have, given how vast the U of T community is.

Waqas Ahmad, scholarship recipient
During my time in the Urban Studies Program and at Innis College, I was humbled to obtain scholarships every year due to my commitment to academic excellence. These scholarships instilled in me the knowledge that by continuing to work hard, I could obtain anything I put my mind to. They played a significant role in my success and professional journey by giving me intellectual confidence, something I bring to my work on a daily basis as a city planner for the City of Pickering.
