Entrance Awards and Scholarships
CLICK HERE FOR INFORMATION ON THE CENTENNIAL SCHOLARSHIPS FOR FALL 2013.
Entrance awards and scholarships are available to students entering first-year, full-time programs at Laurier who have no previous attendance at post-secondary educational institutions (university or college).
An entrance award requires proof of financial need; an entrance scholarship does not. Some entrance scholarships are granted automatically based on submitted marks (no application is required); the entrance scholarship grid is one example of an automatic entrance scholarship.
Other awards and scholarships are competitive and are granted to the student(s) who submits the best student profile online and meets the specific eligibility criteria for each award opportunity; all necessary application forms will be available on LORIS in the summer of 2013. The description of each opportunity will indicate if it is an award or a scholarship, as well as the eligibility criteria for each. For a reference of all available opportunities, a complete listing of these award opportunities will be posted in the spring 2013.
The submission deadline for applications for first year students entering full time studies in the Fall 2013 will be in October 2013.
Some entrance awards and scholarships are only available to students entering Laurier's Brantford Campus, while we have award opportunities that are specific to a program of study.
Important Note on Endowments: Opportunities that will be listed on the Student Awards web site that are identified as being "endowed" (under the Description of each opportunity) are financed by investment income generated by gifts to the university. The university will grant up to a maximum of 4 percent of the value of these endowments, depending upon the amount of interest income generated on an annual basis. Consequently, these opportunities may or may not be available during any particular academic year due to the nature of financial markets. The values quoted for these opportunities on this web site represent the maximum amounts that may be available, not the actual amounts that will ultimately be granted.
