IX. Scholarships and Other Awards
General Statements on Awards
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 College 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 colleges 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.
