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 have submitted their February mid-term grade reports and who have applied for admission to Memorial by the March 1st deadline.
Offers will be made in late March based upon early scholarship averages in descending order of average until all funds have been offered. 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.
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.
Newfoundland students who feel that they are eligible for scholarship consideration and students applying to Nursing and Fine Arts are the only students who should submit their midterm grade reports.
Before submitting your grade reports, you should check your eligibility for scholarship consideration. The link to the calculation process is on the admissions website to verify your eligibility.
Each student should only submit one copy of their February midterm grade reports. Please do not provide your NL high school transcripts.
To be eligible, you must be a high school student, graduating from a Newfoundland and Labrador High School, entering the first year of an undergraduate degree program at Memorial University in September 2019, and have an average of 90% or higher in final grades for applicable courses completed or the mid-term grades for applicable courses being completed during the school year. The courses used must be those required for admission to the university. Applicants must have also demonstrated leadership contributions to school and community in Levels I, II, and III.
The Scholarship application is in writeable PDF format and must be downloaded for completion.
Deadline for receipt of the completed application is March 1st each year.
