Depending on the scholarship or award, selection will be based on academic standing and/or demonstrated exceptional leadership. Secondary criteria may include but are not limited to; financial need, residency, extracurricular activities and/or previous award funding. Funding levels vary annually and selection is competitive. Meeting base eligibility requirements does not guarantee a scholarship offer.

Candidates must meet the following base academic criteria for transfer scholarships:

  • Present an admission average that meets or exceeds those required for the specific scholarship.

  • Be transferring from another post-secondary institution into a full-time undergraduate program OR be entering full-time studies in the first year of a professional degree (Law, Medicine, Dentistry, or Pharmacy) OR after degree program (ex. Nursing or Education).

  • Scholarship offers are conditional on the accuracy of your self-recorded grades. If there is a discrepancy between your self-recorded grades and your final official transcript, your scholarship offer could be revoked.
