GENERAL INFORMATION

Various types of awards are available to students of Memorial University of Newfoundland. Included are scholarships, bursaries, fellowships, studentships, prizes, medals and loans.
   
A scholarship is an award given solely on the basis of academic performance or standing. There may be limitations as to eligibility, but of the students eligible, the one with the highest grade or grades receives the scholarship.

A grant is an award for which need is a prime consideration, normally with the provision that the recipient be, or remain, in good academic standing. Grants are issued at the discretion of the Director of General Student Services.

Loans are granted to students on an "ad hoc" basis with need being the prime consideration. Loans are normally repaid before the commencement of subsequent semesters. Interest is charged on outstanding loans. Administration of loans is at the discretion of the Director of General Student Services.

Some awards may be held for more than one year, but are renewable only if the student maintains scholarship standing. Awards are usually disbursed in one instalment.

Entrance scholarships are awarded for the Fall Semester.

Unless otherwise noted, entrance scholarships are open to Canadian citizens and landed immigrants graduating from secondary schools within Canada who are admitted to Memorial University of Newfoundland on the basis of high school grades and current entrance standards and who meet the current definition of scholarship standing. They are also open to students in the above category who may not be coming directly from high school. This is limited to those who have previously matriculated, are admitted to the University on the basis of high school grades and current entrance standards and who meet the current definition of scholarship standing.

Distinct undergraduate entrance scholarships are available for international students. The values will vary but will not exceed $3,000 each. To be considered for these scholarships, a student must be eligible to pay international undergraduate tuition fees, must register for a minimum course load of 12 credit hours in each of two semesters in their first academic year at Memorial University of Newfoundland and have fewer than 31 credit hours of transfer credits. These scholarships will be awarded by the Senate Committee on Undergraduate Scholarships and Financial Aid on the basis of a recommendation from the Director, Office of Student Recruitment.

The selection of candidates for international entrance scholarships will be based on a number of criteria, including academic standing (comparable to that prescribed for Newfoundland and Labrador and Canadian applicants), principals’ and teachers’ letters of recommendation and school and community activities.

Scholarship standing for undergraduate entrance students (who are Canadian citizens or landed immigrants graduating from secondary schools within Canada) is defined as a 75% average compiled from the final grades received in secondary school courses required for university admission. Students beginning level three who, at the end of level two, had completed at least six 3000 level credits from the list of courses covered under UNIVERSITY REGULATIONS - ADMISSION/READMISSION TO THE UNIVERSITY (UNDERGRADUATE), 3.1, Applicants Who Have Followed the High School Curriculum of the Newfoundland and Labrador, may be provisionally offered scholarships. Students graduating from High Schools in other provinces in Canada may be eligible based on corresponding criteria from their provincial secondary program. The provisional offer will remain in effect until university admission averages are determined. Where admission averages are 90% or above the scholarship shall be awarded.

Scholarship standing for undergraduate students is defined as a 75% average at the end of two out of the last three semesters in the previous scholarship year and the successful completion of not less than 30 credit hours in those two semesters. In considering students who complete more than 30 credit hours in those two semesters, the average on the actual number of credit hours taken will be reviewed. Students who fail one or more courses during the scholarship year, regardless of the number of courses completed, will not be eligible for scholarships.

For Co-op students who do not meet the above definition because of scheduled work terms, scholarship standing is defined as a 75% average over the most recent two academic semesters in the preceding four semesters in which they must have been enroled as regular full-time Co-op students. Those who fail an academic course or work term during the four semester period will not be eligible for scholarships.

Not all students who meet the above definitions of scholarship standing will receive a scholarship.

Students transferring to Memorial University of Newfoundland from Universities/Colleges in Canada which are members of the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC) and who meet scholarship standing as defined by Memorial University of Newfoundland will be eligible for undergraduate scholarships in the year in which they transfer. Such students must notify the Scholarships and Awards Office in writing of their intention to transfer and provide a complete transcript for the year in question.

Awards must be taken during the scholarship year for which they are awarded and the student must be registered full time or in a recognized work term in order to receive their scholarship, unless stated otherwise in the terms of reference. The scholarship year runs from May 1st - April 30th.

A student may receive in any one scholarship year one general award of any value administered by the Senate Committee on Undergraduate Scholarships and Financial Aid or more than one award to a combined value of 1.5 times the per semester tuition for 15 credit hours. In addition, students may receive, upon recommendation of the appropriate academic unit, awards administered by the Senate Committee on Undergraduate Scholarships and Financial Aid such that the total of general and academic unit specific awards does not exceed three times the per semester tuition for 15 credit hours.

Students who have obtained scholarship standing as defined above need not apply for general scholarships. Inquiries from students with special circumstances and/or concerning scholarships with special terms should be referred to the Scholarships and Awards Office, University Centre, Room 4018.

Students attending the Sir Wilfred Grenfell College in Corner Brook should make scholarship inquiries at the Student Affairs Office on that campus.

Students wishing to apply for awards administered by other authorities should consult the appropriate section of the Scholarships & Awards portion of the Calendar and/or the Scholarships and Awards Office.

In addition to undergraduate awards listed herein, limited information is included concerning Studentships, Fellowships and Graduate Awards. Further inquiries may be made to the Scholarship Committee, though students are advised to consult the Heads of their Departments, the Dean of the Faculty or the Dean of Graduate Studies concerning these particular awards.

THE RHODES SCHOLARSHIP

A Rhodes Scholarship is tenable at the University of Oxford and may be held for three years. Since, however, the majority of Rhodes Scholars obtain standing which enables them to take a degree in two years, appointments are made for two years in the first instance, and a Rhodes Scholar who may wish to remain for a third year must present a definite plan of study for that period satisfactory to his/her College and to the Rhodes Trustees. Rhodes Scholars may be allowed, if conditions are approved by their own College and by the Oxford Secretary to the Rhodes Trustees, either to postpone their third year, returning to Oxford after a period of work in their own countries, or to spend their third year in post-graduate work at any university in Great Britain, and in special cases at any university on the continent of Europe, in the Overseas Dominions, or in the United States, but not in the country of their origin. This privilege of taking the work of the third year away from Oxford is, however, granted only in exceptional circumstances.

The stipend of a Rhodes Scholarship consists of a direct payment to the University and to the Scholar's College of approved fees (such as matriculation, tuition, laboratory fees, and certain other set charges), plus a maintenance allowance, which is paid directly to the Scholar at the rate of at least ₤3,480 per annum to cover board, lodging and other expenses. The sum provided should be sufficient to enable a Scholar to meet the necessary expenses for term-time and vacations, but those who can afford to supplement it to a modest extent from their own resources are advised to do so. Reasonable travel expenses to and from Oxford will be paid by the Trust. Application forms containing full particulars can be obtained from the Secretary of the Selection Committee for the Province of Newfoundland or from the Scholarships and Awards Office at Memorial University of Newfoundland. Inquiries may be directed to the Secretary of the Selection Committee:
