Important Information on Revised Eligibilty for Scholarships and the Dean's List

The university has published a revised definition of scholarship standing for undergraduate students for 2020-21. The Faculty of Engineering Scholarships Committee has agreed that for the purposes of ranking students for Scholarship Eligibility and Dean’s List Eligibility, we will use the best four numeric grades from the Winter 2019-20 semester. This means that if a student chooses PAS/FAL for one course, then that course will be ignored and the best four numeric grades they have will be used to determine eligibility. For students who have all numeric grades, the best four out of five will be considered. If a student has more than one PAS/FAL grade, then they will not be eligible for scholarship consideration. Please contact Jayde Edmunds ( if you require more information.

A Memorial Engineering degree is a rewarding investment, but the initial cost of a university education can be daunting. Our scholarship and award opportunities can help you succeed. Some acknowledge students for their academic success while others focus on student leadership and innovation. Read the descriptions of the awards to determine if you are eligible and how to apply. We’ve also included past award winners and our Dean’s List.

***New Scholarship for incoming Engineering One Students for Fall 2020!

  • The Peter Kohler Engineering Scholarship

This scholarship was established by a generous donation from Peter Kohler. The people of Newfoundland and Labrador have supported Mr. Kohler's business well over many years. As a firm believer in the value of higher Engineering education, Mr. Kohler wanted to give back by supporting the province's only Bachelor of Engineering program. This scholarship is valued at $50,000 per student, and will be awarded at $10,000 each year over five years, with renewal dependent on the recipient maintaining the minimum academic requirements for a scholarship and funding remaining available. The scholarship will be awarded annually to a student entering the Memorial University Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science Co-operative Education Program. The recipient must demonstrate high academic ability, with preference going towards students who attended and graduated high school in Newfoundland and Labrador who demonstrate financial need. Recipients must meet the minimum academic requirements for a scholarship as defined by Memorial University of Newfoundland. It will be awarded by the Senate Committee on Undergraduate Scholarships, Bursaries and Awards on the recommendation of the Dean, Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science.
