Under the authority of the Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act, 2015 (SNL2015 Chapter A-1.2), the Scholarships Office collects personal information for university scholarships, bursaries and awards programs. This information is used to assess students' eligibility and to administer the programs. Many Memorial University scholarships, bursaries and awards are provided by individuals and organizations who generously donate funds. If a student's university-administered scholarship, bursary or award is funded by a donor(s), the student's contact information is disclosed to the donor(s). In addition, some university departments may use photos and/or recipient lists for promotional and celebratory purposes. Information may also be disclosed to students’ secondary schools for celebratory purposes. The disclosure of personal information is permitted under the authority of the ATIPP Act. If there are questions about the collection, use and disclosure of students' personal information, or you do not wish for your personal information to be disclosed in this manner, please contact the Scholarships and Awards Office.
