The Scholarships, Awards and Financial Aid Office

  • administers entrance and undergraduate scholarships, bursaries and awards;
  • processes loan documents for students from the United States and from other Canadian provinces other than Newfoundland and Labrador, and provides liaison services between those students and their provincial loan offices.

Applications are not necessary for most Memorial scholarships; they are awarded automatically based on academics and recommendations from academic units.  You only need to apply for a scholarship if that requirement is specified.  All Scholarships, Bursaries and Awards administered by the Senate Committee on Undergraduate Scholarships, Bursaries and Awards are listed in the University Calendar Scholarship Listing. NOTE: You only need to apply for a scholarship if the description says so, otherwise you are considered automatically.

Application Based Scholarships (very specific criteria):  These scholarships can only be awarded to a student who has completed this APPLICATION FORM and have submitted required documentation (if any).  Some scholarships on the application form are also open to Entrance students

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.
