Students on Co-op or Exchange

Most undergraduate students who earn scholarships and other merit-based awards are required to meet minimum credit-load and academic performance criteria, according to the Regulations Governing University Awards. However, if you are on a Co-op or Exchange term or in your final year of study, please refer to the Special circumstances for students receiving awards or contact your Enrolment Services Advisor directly for more information.

If you are in a post-baccalaureate program such as Medicine, Dentistry, Law, or Education (except NITEP) you will not be eligible. You may qualify for substantial faculty-recommended scholarships. Contact your faculty’s scholarship representative or check your faculty website to find out more.
