Memorial University offers its students many opportunities to receive scholarships and awards.
There are three categories of undergraduate scholarships:
Entrance Scholarships: Available to new students entering Memorial University.
Undergraduate Scholarships: Available to continuing students at Memorial University. There are three types of scholarships available to current, continuing undergraduate students.
- Faculty-Recommended Scholarships: Certain faculty/departments have scholarships and awards specific to their area of study. Candidates for these scholarships and awards are recommended by the faculty or department. Students should declare a Faculty and/or Major as early as possible if they wish to be considered for certain faculty-specific undergraduate scholarships.
- Application Based Scholarships (very specific criteria): These scholarships can only be awarded to a student who has completed this APPLICATION FORM and have submitted required documentaion (if any). Some scholarships on the application form are also open to Entrance students.
- General Scholarships: These scholarships are not affiliated with an academic department and are open to all undergraduate students who meet the scholarship standing requirements. These awards are awarded based on a variety of criteria such as academics, financial needs, place of residence, etc.
External Scholarships: These scholarships are not specific to, and are not administered by Memorial University
