Scholarships and awards

Entrance scholarships are awarded to residents of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canadian citizens and landed immigrants graduating from secondary schools within Canada on the basis of their academic performance in high school.

Distinct undergraduate entrance scholarships are available to international students on the basis of their academic performance, principals' and teachers’ letters of recommendation, and school and community activities.

In general, entering students as described above 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. Applications must be completed for these awards. A list is available from the Scholarships and Awards office, or from the Student Services office at Grenfell ((709) 637-6232). Students from outside the province should contact the scholarships office to determine if they are eligible. Further information is available from:
