Awards for Current International Undergraduate Students

Scholarship Eligibility (beyond first year)

International Students are eligible for most continuing undergraduate scholarships beyond their first year of studies. All scholarships require students to be in scholarship standing. 

Scholarship standing for the 2021-2022 scholarship year for undergraduate students is defined as a 75% average over the previous scholarship year and the successful completion of not less than 30 credit hours over that period. In considering students who complete more than 30 credit hours, the average on the actual number of credit hours taken will be reviewed.

Students who fail one or more courses during the previous scholarship year regardless of the number of courses completed, will not be eligible for scholarships.

For the 2021-2022 scholarship year, for students who do not meet the above definition because of scheduled internships or equivalent or work terms, scholarship standing is defined as a 75% average on the academic work completed in the previous scholarship year in which they must have been enrolled as regular full-time Co-op students. Those who fail an academic course, internship or equivalent, or work term during the previous scholarship year will not be eligible for scholarships.

Students should declare a Faculty and/or Major as early as possible if they wish to be considered to certain faculty-specific undergraduate scholarships.
