Undergraduate Scholarships

DEFINITION: a scholarship is granted on a competitive basis for outstanding academic achievement; scholarships may be granted automatically, based on recorded marks, or by application, in which other factors such as extra-curricular activities or volunteer work, will be considered. Financial need is never a consideration. An endowed (see note below) scholarship is granted from investment income generated by the original gift to the university. An annual scholarship is paid directly by the donor to the university on an annual basis. The university may allot scholarships by faculty. The university reserves the right not to grant a specific scholarship if no eligible applicants are identified. The stated value of scholarships is subject to change. Scholarships offered by the university are tenable only at Laurier.

The process for students who would like to be considered for all competitive scholarship and award opportunities which are available through our office involves the completion of the "general profile which is open to all students" and the applicable "faculty specific profile(s)". Students are asked to submit their student and applicable faculty specific profile(s) which are available online on LORIS during the program timelines.

Important Note on Endowments: Opportunities which are listed on the Student Awards web site that are identified as being "endowed" (see under the Description of each opportunity) are financed by investment income generated by gifts to the university. The university will grant up to a maximum of 4 percent of the value of these endowments, depending upon the amount of interest income generated on an annual basis. Consequently, these opportunities may or may not be available during any particular academic year due to the nature of financial markets. Any values which may quoted for these opportunities on this web site represent the maximum amounts that may be available, not the actual amounts that will ultimately be granted.
