Awards & Financing

The Committee on Awards, established by the Senate of the University, is responsible
for the supervision of the administration of awards in the gift of the Senate. In addition,
this Committee formulates policies regarding the effective use of funds designated for
awards and establishes the terms and conditions attached to the awards. Each Campus
has an Awards Committee which is responsible for the awarding of scholarships and
bursaries. The University of Guelph attracts a community of outstanding scholars to its
broad range of faculties and programs.

To be eligible for entrance awards, you should be a Canadian Citizen or Permanent
Resident entering the 1st year of post-secondary studies for the first time. All in-course
awards indicate the semester level in which the award is normally applicable. Full-time
and part-time students are eligible for all awards, unless otherwise stated in the eligibility
clause. Where applications are required, it is the student's responsibility to obtain an
application form and to see that it is returned prior to the deadline date.

ACCESS Awards: The University recently established an endowment fund through the
generous contributions of over 6,000 donors which was matched by the provincial
government's Ontario Student Opportunity Trust Fund (OSOTF) program. The income
generated from this endowment will be used to support financial aid programs. The awards
created will be used to assist Canadian Citizens or permanent residents who meet the
Ontario residency requirements as mandated by the OSOTF program. Students must
complete a needs assessment application in order to be considered. ACCESS awards will
be available both within the Campuss and university-wide commencing in the Fall semester
1998. Please contact the Student Financial Services office for further details.
The University reserves the right to amend awards subject to the availability of funds.
Please contact the individual Campuses directly for information on Scholarships, Awards
and Bursaries.
