Residence Scholarships

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

There are three categories:


1) Returning Student Scholarships

Three of these will be offered per academic year. You can apply if you are an undergraduate student and a returning resident who met the Returning Student application and deposit deadline. 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.

The application DEADLINE IS JUNE 03, 2024.
