International Entrance Scholarships
Memorial University offers its international students opportunities to receive scholarships and awards. Once you have applied to Memorial University, you will automatically be considered for an entrance scholarship (if you meet the eligibility criteria). That means, no additional application is necessary. Those successful in obtaining a scholarship will be notified their acceptance to Memorial University has been received.
International entrance scholarships are non-renewable for a students' first year of study. (Note: International transfer students will only be considered for an entrance scholarship if fewer than 31 credit hours are transferred).
The Memorial University of Newfoundland International Entrance Scholarship
Top applicants will be offered a scholarship valued at either $3,000 or $4,400 as funding allows and available to applicants from both the St. John's and Grenfell campuses. These scholarships have been established by Memorial University of Newfoundland as part of an agreement by the Board of Regents, in May 2003, that a portion of the tuition fees for international undergraduate students would be set aside for International Scholarships. To be considered for these scholarships, a student must be eligible to pay the full international undergraduate fee, must register for at least 9 credit hours in each of two semesters in their first academic year at Memorial University of Newfoundland, should normally have fewer than 31 credit hours of transfer credits and meet scholarship standing (comparable to that prescribed for Newfoundland and Labrador and Canadian applicants). These scholarships will be awarded by the Senate Committee on Undergraduate Scholarships, Bursaries and Awards on the basis of a recommendation from the Director, Office of Student Recruitment.
IUGS Entrance Scholarship for Undergraduate Students
This scholarship has been made available by the university through a portion of funds from the St. John’s International undergraduate student tuition fees (IUGS). It will be awarded to new undergraduate international students on the St. John’s campus. The scholarship will be valued at approximately $6,000 and not normally be renewable. To be considered for this scholarship, a student must be eligible to pay the full international undergraduate fees and meet scholarship standing (comparable to that prescribed for Newfoundland and Labrador and Canadian applicants). A student may not hold this scholarship in conjunction with another general International entrance scholarship of significant value. The scholarship will be administered by the Senate Committee on Undergraduate Scholarships, Bursaries and Awards based on the recommendation of the Registrar (or designate) and the Director of Internationalization Office (or designate).

Scholarship Eligibility (beyond first year)
International Students are eligible for most continuing undergraduate scholarships beyond their first year of studies. Most scholarships require students to be in scholarship standing. Scholarship standing for undergraduate students is defined as a 75% average at the end of two out of the last three semesters at Memorial University in the previous scholarship year and the successful completion of not less than thirty credit hours in those two semesters. Students who fail one or more courses in a scholarship year will not be eligible for scholarships. Not all students who meet the above definitions of scholarship standing will receive a scholarship. Students should declare a Faculty and/or Major as early as possible if they wish to be considered to certain faculty-specific undergraduate scholarships.
