The Brock Doctoral Scholarship is one of the most prestigious doctoral awards available at the University. University of Guelph seeks to attract scholars with potential to attain a high level of academic achievement and to make significant teaching and research contributions. Winners represent the very best in their College and at the University.


It is hoped that award holders will be mentors for future Brock Doctoral Scholarship winners. Equally weighted selection criteria include: (i) sustained, outstanding academic performance; (ii) history of leadership and/or service in schools and the community; (iii) evidence of strong teaching and research skills (including publication record if appropriate for the discipline); (iv) demonstrated outstanding communication skills, and (v) excellent potential for research and teaching as assessed by the College Dean. One additional criterion may be considered with lesser weighting: provincial, national, international or otherwise significant awards related to the discipline of study.
