Entrance scholarships are available to students graduating from Canadian High Schools outside Newfoundland and Labrador but they do not have to apply specifically for the scholarships. They are considered automatically based on their admission application to the university.

Canadian Schulich Leader Scholarships
Canadian Schulich Leader Scholarships are undergraduate scholarships for students intending to enroll in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) areas of study at one of the 20 selected universities.
All Canadian high schools and secondary schools (not including Québec) may submit one Schulich Leader Nominee each. Cégeps (in Québec) may select two nominees each. Schulich Leader Nominees are selected by their individual schools and must possess at least two of three criteria:
1. Outstanding community, business or entrepreneurial leadership
2. Academic excellence
3. Financial need
Once Schulich Leader Nominees are verified, they can apply their nomination to the participating universities in Canada where they intend to submit formal applications for undergraduate study for Fall 2016. Formal applications for undergraduate study must be submitted by each Schulich Leader Nominee no later than February 2, 2016.
All participating universities are responsible for selecting the Schulich Leaders for their respective institution. In 2015, 50 Canadian Schulich Leaders were selected – two Schulich Leaders at each participating university. A listing of 2015 winners are available at their website.
A total of 50 scholarships are awarded each year. Half of these undergraduate entrance scholarships (25) are valued at $60,000 CAD and are reserved for Nominees pursuing degrees in science, technology or mathematics (non-engineering programs). The remaining Schulich Leader Scholarships (25) are valued at $80,000 CAD and are reserved for Nominees pursuing a degree in an engineering-based programs. Each participating university will select two Schulich Leaders from a pool of Schulich Leader Nominees, one at $60,000 CAD and one at $80,000 CAD.
