Scholarship standing for undergraduate students for 2022-23

Students will be considered for scholarships based on the following minimum criteria:

Scholarship standing for undergraduate entrance students (who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents graduating from secondary schools within Canada) is defined as a 75% average compiled from the final grades received in secondary school courses required for University admission. 

Scholarship standing for  continuing 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.

First class standing for scholarships that include standing as a requirement is defined as a Grade Point Average of 3.5 out of 4.0 in the semesters being considered for scholarship standing.

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  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 transferring to Memorial University of Newfoundland from Universities/Colleges in Canada which are members of Universities Canada and who meet scholarship standing as defined by Memorial University of Newfoundland will be eligible for undergraduate scholarships in the year in which they transfer. Such students must notify the Scholarships, Awards, and Financial Aid Office in writing of their intention to transfer and provide a complete transcript for the year in question.

Not all students who meet the above definitions of scholarship standing will receive a scholarship.
