Entrance Scholarships, based on Admission Average, for All Degree Programs.

All Canadian citizens/PR entering the first semester of post-secondary studies for the first time with a minimum 75.0% admission average applying to the University of Guelph are automatically considered for a University of Guelph Entrance Scholarship. The scholarship offer will be made with the offer of admission to students who qualify. Whether a scholarship offer is made with an admission offer or not, all eligible students will be re-considered in May and August and have the opportunity to qualify or better their award.

Students who do not make the minimum grade for a guaranteed scholarship will still be considered for all other entrance awards. These include entrance bursaries, need-based scholarships, and/or program-specific scholarships the University may offer.

Scholarship payments are split into two equal payments and applied to the University of Guelph's student account as payment toward tuition for the fall and winter semesters.

The scholarship for students with an admission average between 75.0% and 89.9% is awarded for the first year of study only and registration is required in both semesters to receive the full scholarship amount.

*Students receiving the $3,500 entrance scholarship are eligible to receive a $1,500 award in years 2, 3, and 4 when they maintain full-time registration and achieve a minimum 80.0% average each year.

The University of Guelph Entrance Scholarship can be held with all other entrance scholarships offered by the University of Guelph.
