Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies Scholarships
Scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis to full-time entering or
continuing graduate students who achieve high academic standing in
their program. All qualified students meeting the current "scholarship"
standard for the academic unit are automatically considered. Application
is not required. A scholarship is awarded on academic merit, not
financial need. WLU Graduate Scholarships have a minimum value of $1,000
and are tenable for study at WLU while enrolled as a full-time student
completing coursework and/or research. Normally, scholarships are paid
in three equal instalments over three terms. Students awarded a WLU
scholarship must sign and agree to abide by the terms indicated on the
Graduate Scholarship Contract form.
Terms and Conditions of Laurier Graduate Scholarships
All WLU Graduate Scholarships are conditional on registering as a
full-time graduate student and on maintaining a full-time courseload, as defined
by the department, during the term in which the scholarhsip is held.
Scholarships are awarded for registration in the program indicated on the offer, and are not transferrable from one program to another.
Scholarship funds will be credited to student accounts. Upon written request to the Business Office, a credit balance will be refunded by direct deposit, no earlier than one week following the last day for a late registration for the term.
Students who withdraw from the program during the term will be required to repay a pro-rated portion of their graduate scholarship.
Laurier Graduate Scholarships may not normally be held concurrently with a major external award. In its place, either an Incentive Scholarship (for students in the professional master's programs) or a Dean's Scholarship (for students in the research-intensive master's programs) may be offered.
