New Merit-based Scholarship Program for International Students
Starting in Winter 2019 and continuing each semester thereafter, scholarships will be awarded to international students who have entered semester two and who have just completed their first semester of study. Eligibility will be based on semester one grade point averages. Eligible GPA ranges and dollar values are described in the table below:
|Grade Point Average (GPA) Range||Scholarship Amounts|
|Students in one-year programs||Students in two or three-year programs|
|A+||90 – 100||4.0||$1,000||$2,000|
|A||85 – 89||3.999 – 3.800||$500||$1,000|
Scholarships will be awarded in rank order of term one GPA until all funding on reserve for the given semester is exhausted or until all who qualify have been awarded. We hope the timing of this announcement will provide some incentive for current semester one international students to work as hard as they can and perform at their very best as the fall semester draws to a close.
New Financial Need Bursaries for International Students
A new financial need bursaries program is also being rolled out for international students. The program has been structured to mirror our domestic financial need bursary program. For immediate implementation, international students who find themselves in financial distress should be referred to Financial Aid in the Registrar’s Office for assistance.
