Residence Scholarships

Is money tight? This might help: Student Housing Services offers five scholarships of $500 each for returning residents.

The application link will open in January 2017.   The application DEADLINE IS MARCH 31, 2017.

There are two categories:

1) Returning Student Scholarships

Three of these will be offered. You can apply if you are an undergraduate student and a returning resident (who got the application submitted on time). You also need:

  • at least a 70% average
  • demonstrated financial need as indicated by OSAP or your provincial/territorial loan program
  • strong community involvement and a reference letter from a
    Residence Life Staff member or member of Residence Student Government

The $500 will be awarded as a $250 reduction in your residence fees for each semester of the coming year. You must remain in residence for the entire Fall semester to be eligible for the $250 rebate, and similarly remain in residence for the entire Winter semester to be eligible for the second $250.

2) Residence Life Staff Scholarships

Two of these will be offered. All the same conditions apply as for the Returning Student Scholarships, PLUS you must also attain a Residence Life Staff position for the following year.

You may apply for both, but cannot get both awards at the same time.
