Scholarships and Awards

The Faculty of Science offers a variety of awards, scholarships and bursaries to its students, many of whom rely on these to begin or continue their studies.

We are very grateful to the alumni and friends of the school who have supported our students. Without their generous support, our students would face significantly more challenges in attaining their education.

Through student awards, talent, hard work and leadership are rewarded. Student awards also make a student's current studies more affordable. It is our goal to increase the number of scholarships, awards and bursaries available to our students to ensure they have a bright future.

There are four types of student awards and each is based on different criteria. You may be interested in supporting a specific type of award and for your convenience we have outlined them below.

Scholarships recognize the achievements of a student in an academic field. They can be presented to students who have attained excellence in a specific scientific field, research discipline, or for other achievements. Scholarships can be awarded at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Bursaries are created to ensure that students who are in financial need can gain access to higher education and training. The value of a bursary can have a significant impact on the lives of students who are struggling financially to pay tuition and other living expenses.

Awards are a wonderful way to celebrate the accomplishments of students who are excelling within the Faculty of Science, the university or in the community. An award can recognize student attributes such as community service, leadership, or other special criteria.

Fellowships allow for the funding of graduate degree programs and ensure students can continue to pursue their cutting-edge research. The ability to offer fellowships helps to attract the top students to the study of science.
