Newfoundland and Labrador Students

Each spring, Memorial University offers a limited number of entrance scholarships to qualifying Canadian students enrolled in Newfoundland and Labrador High Schools.

Entrance scholarships are valued at either $2,550 or $1,275. These values are equivalent to tuition fees for two semesters (10 courses/30 credit hours of full-time study) and one semester (5 courses/15 credit hours of full-time study) respectively.  These will be offered at a ratio of approximately two $2,550 entrance scholarships for each $1,275 scholarship offered. 

Early offers will be made to eligible candidates who applied for admission to Memorial by the March 1st deadline.  The process by which offers will be made is currently under review and will be communicated to all schools in the province once the review is complete.

Please note that while only students with a 90% early average will be considered for an early offer, we cannot predict what the cut-off average will be.  Offers will be made to eligible students in late March until all funds have been offered.

A minimum final admission average of 90% will be required in order to maintain entrance scholarship eligibility. Final entrance scholarship eligibility, for those who receive early offers, will be confirmed in August.  Any funds that are available in August will be allocated with additional (late) entrance scholarship offers for eligible students who have not already received an offer.
