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. In addition, there is a University Bursary Committee that is responsible for bursaries which are based entirely on financial need and do not have an academic requirement. Some scholarships and bursaries are open to all students regardless of degree or diploma program and these are listed first in the Calendar. Others are restricted to students in particular degree or diploma programs and these are listed by program. Students entering the 1st semester should therefore consult all of these sections for entrance awards. 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 have the semester level indicated in the title for 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. A minimum of 70% average is required for all awards, excluding bursaries. Where applications are required, it is the student's responsibility to obtain an application from the Assistant Registrar, Student Finance and Awards and to see that it is returned prior to the deadline date.

An application is not necessary unless otherwise indicated.

The University reserves the right to amend awards subject to the availability of funds.
