Entrance Scholarships Chart


Ontario secondary school applicants will be considered ​automatically for our entrance scholarships based on their best six 4U/4M grades (or final IB score including bonus points)(exclu​​ding co-op courses) as of June 30. Conditional offers of scholarships will go out with offers of admission. Students must accept their offer of admission by the deadline date outlined in their offer letter to be considered automatically for these scholarships.  Scholarship eligibility will be reviewed once final grades are available June 30; additional offers may go out at that time or existing scholarship offers may be topped up or reversed based on new eligibility.  Emails confirming Guaranteed Entrance Scholarship eligibility will be sent to qualifying students in early August.

Current high school applicants from other Canadian provinces are also eligible for scholarship considerati​on.
