Applying for Awards
On the Personal Information page, we do require that you fill out all boxes marked with a red asterisk (*). For the High School and High School Division boxes, please enter “N/A” as this information does not pertain to you.
Academic Achievement - What marks should I use?
For 1st and 2nd year International students, there is a designated box on the application to enter your cumulative average, located near the bottom of the Academic Achievement page. You do not need to fill out any other portion of this page.
- 1st Year Students – since we require high school marks for academic achievement, you will need to complete a semester on campus before you can apply for student awards. At that point, you can use your 1st semester cumulative average. A specific award for 1st year International students will be made available for application in the December – February posting.
- 2nd Year Students – can apply for student awards starting in April using your cumulative average from the 1st year of study. This applies to all second year students.
You do not need to fill out the Financial Need page of the application, as we do not require financial information for academic achievement based scholarships.
You will only need to fill out this page if additional information was required in the eligibility or selection criteria on the Award Selection page.
