University of Guelph Entrance Scholarships

Fall 2024 Entrance Scholarships, Based on Admission Average, for All Degree Programs

Admission Average Award Amount
90.0% - 94.9% $1,000
95.0% and greater $2,000

All Canadian citizens/PR entering the 1st semester of post-secondary studies for the first time with a minimum 90.0% 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. 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 concurrently with other entrance scholarships offered by the University of Guelph, with the exception of the President's Scholarship, Lincoln Alexander Chancellor's Scholarship and Board of Governors' Scholarship.

The University reserves the right to change its scholarship programs without notice.
