University of Guelph Entrance Scholarships

Fall 2019

Entrance Scholarships, based on Admission Average, for All Degree Programs.
Admission Average Award Amount
85.0% - 89.9% $2,000
90.0% and greater $3,000

All Canadian citizens/PR  entering the 1st semester of post-secondary studies for the first time with a minimum 85.0% 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 received a University of Guelph Entrance Scholarship offer prior to our evaluation of final grades in August must maintain a minimum 80.0% final admission average.

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. This scholarship is awarded for the first year of study only and registration is required in both semesters to receive the full scholarship amount. The University of Guelph Entrance Scholarship can be held with all other entrance scholarships offered by the University of Guelph.
