Domestic Applicants, Resources, Top Application Tips

The 2024 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).

Please refer to the 2024 Medical School Application Fee Waiver  Program Guide. The Guide includes specifications for completing your application, as well as a list of necessary documents you must provide to be considered for fee assistance, FAQs, and other important dates. Check your eligibility by responding to the online questionnaires listed below. If you meet the assessment criteria outlined in the eligibility check, you will then have access to apply to the fee assistance program.

Applications open on June 27, 2024, and close on August 22, 2024 (11:59 PM).

Awarded students will have their $220 OMSAS processing fee waived and receive free applications to up to three Ontario medical schools of their choice (ranging from $125 – $390 total) for the 2024-2025 application cycle.
