Scholarships and Awards


Entering students do not have to apply for entrance scholarships administered by the university. These students are considered automatically, based on their high school performance. There are, in addition, several entrance scholarships for students in special circumstances.

[Read more]

 

Entrance scholarships are awarded, on the basis of academic performance in high school, to residents of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canadian citizens and permanent residents graduating from secondary schools within Canada. Students must indicate on the application for admission if they want to be considered for early scholarship offers. Newfoundland high school students must provide a copy of their mid-term grade report to admiss.doc@mun.ca. Students from other provinces in Canada will be assessed based on the transcripts they submit as part of their application for admission.

Distinct undergraduate entrance scholarships are available for international students. They are academic based, and the monetary value is between $3,000 and $4,400. Students do not need to apply for these scholarships; they are automatically considered when they apply to the university. To be considered for these scholarships, a student must be eligible to pay the full international undergraduate fee, must register for at least nine credit hours in each of two semesters in their first academic year at Memorial University, should normally have fewer than 31 credit hours of transfer credits and meet scholarship standing (comparable to that prescribed for Newfoundland and Labrador and Canadian applicants).

In addition, there are several entrance scholarships for students in special circumstances that require a separate application. A list of the above is available from the Scholarships and Awards Office at St. John’s campus or from the Student Services Office at Grenfell Campus.

Student Aid


The Government of Canada and the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador work together to provide student financial assistance to residents of the province. The Student Financial Services Division will determine your eligibility to receive financial assistance through an assessment of your financial need.

[Read more...]

This is done by adding together your educational costs and living costs, then subtracting any resources which may be available to you. This determines your assessed need.

Students are encouraged to apply early and to apply online at www.gov.nl.ca/studentaid. Fully completed online applications (including the submission of any required forms) are reviewed within 10 business days. Applicants can access their account on the student aid website using the same username and password created for their online application. This account allows students to track the processing of their application, access assessment specific information requests, and review the results of their assessment.
