Memorial University
Entrance Scholarships

Most entrance scholarships are awarded automatically and applications are not required. Some entrance scholarships are offered to students in March/April each year. These offers are the result of a nomination process whereby Newfoundland and and Labrador High Schools are asked to nominate their top students for an early scholarship offer of $2000.00 or more. These offers are limited to students who have an average of 90% or higher on the courses required for admission to Memorial University.

Any student entering Memorial University in September with a *final admission average of 90% or higher, who does not receive an early offer or other scholarship of equal or higher value from Memorial University, will receive an entrance scholarship valued at a minimum of $2,000.00.

High school applicants who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents are eligible for $1,000.00 scholarships based on *final admission average. A minimum 85% is required. A limited number of these entrance scholarships will be given starting at *final admission averages of 89.9% and awarded in descending order until all available funds are exhausted.

There are a few exceptions where applications are required. Visit the Memorial Website to review the application and determine eligibility.
