Revised definition of scholarship standing for undergraduate students for 2021-22

8.2 Scholarship Standing

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

Scholarship standing for the 2021-2022 scholarship year 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. Students in level three who have a 90% or higher early admission average may be provisionally offered scholarships. The provisional offer will remain in effect until graduation from high school, a final admission average of 90% or higher, and full time registration at Memorial University of Newfoundland in the 2021-2022 academic year are confirmed.

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 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. The modifications to scholarship standing for the 2021-2022 scholarship year outlined in clause 2 above do not apply to students transferring to Memorial University of Newfoundland during the 2021-2022 academic year.

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