Awards and Scholarships

The Faculty of Arts is pleased to offer a variety of Awards and Scholarships that are available specifically to our students. These awards and scholarships have been endowed by generous donors to reward academic achievement, assist with financial needs and support Arts students' success. These awards are unique to the Faculty of Arts and are therefore administered by the faculty office.
