Guelph-Humber Founders Academic Merit Scholarship

Established in 2012 to mark the ten year anniversary of the University of Guelph-Humber, these awards honour the contributions and leadership of the University’s founders, and are considered to be among the most prestigious entrance awards offered by the University of Guelph-Humber. Ten scholarships of $20,000 ($5000 annually) are awarded to entering students on the basis of high academic achievement (minimum 90% admission average), and demonstrated superior leadership ability and potential as evidenced through positions held and participation in extra-curricular activities, and school and community activities.

Students apply by February 28th, using the on-line application, which includes the requirement for two reference letters attesting to leadership abilities and achievements. Short-listed candidates may be invited to the University of Guelph-Humber campus for interviews. These scholarships cannot be held with the University of Guelph-Humber Student Profile-Leadership Scholarship, or the University of Guelph-Humber Student Leadership Scholarship. This award is also not tenable with the University of Guelph’s President’s and Chancellors’ Scholarships or the Board of Governors’ Scholarships.
