  • Candidates must be classified by the University as international/overseas students for fee purposes.
  • Candidates must have Canadian nationality or residency to be eligible for Canadian Excellence Scholarship.
  • Candidates must not be in receipt of any other undergraduate scholarship for International Students. If successful with two or more scholarships, only the scholarship of the larger value will apply.
  • The scholarships are awarded in the form of a reduction in the tuition fees payable.
  • Where a scholarship is awarded to a candidate who is also eligible for a fee discount, the discount will be calculated after the scholarship reduction to the tuition fees payable has been made.
  • Scholarships are only available for students studying on a full-time basis who are commencing their course in September 2017
  • Where a scholarship is awarded to a candidate and the candidate then does not take up their place in September 2017, it cannot be rolled over to subsequent years.
