2022 Medical School Application
Fee Waiver Program
The 2022 Medical School Application Fee Waiver Program offers awarded students with free medical school applications to participating Canadian medical schools. This program was developed to support medical school applicants facing financial barriers to applying to medical school. The Ontario program was collaboratively developed by the Price of a Dream (POD), the Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada (AFMC), the Council of Ontario Faculties of Medicine (COFM), and the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC).
This year, the University of Alberta and the University of Saskatchewan are piloting fee waiver programs as well. Therefore, in total there are three Medical School Application Fee Waiver Programs available in this application cycle (2022-2023). All the organizations listed are committed to providing support to Canadian students who would either be unable to afford to apply to medical school or would undergo significant financial strain by attempting to apply to medical school without financial assistance.
