Western Science is proud to support the academic success of its undergraduate students. With over 300 scholarships and awards, there are many opportunities to lessen the financial stress you may be experiencing and allow you to focus on your studies.

Types of Scholarships and Awards

Admission: To recognize and reward the outstanding academic achievements of our incoming high school students, Western offers admission scholarships ranging from $2,500 to $8,000. If you are admitted to a Western Science program directly from secondary school, and are registered in first-year full-time studies you will be automatically considered for one of these admission scholarships; you do not need to submit an application. These scholarships are available to domestic and international students. Learn more about Admission Scholarships and Awards.

In-Course: Once you've completed a full year at Western, you could be eligible for a wide range of scholarships and awards, most of which do not require an application. These scholarships and awards are allocated based on your academic performance in the previous year. Decisions are usually made and announced by October/November. In addition, there are some scholarships and awards that do require an application to be submitted to the Registrar's Office by September 30 each year.

Needs-Based: Another set of these scholarships and awards is based on need, as well as academic performance. The deadline to apply is September 30 each year. Learn more about Needs-Based Scholarships and Awards.

Graduating: These scholarships, awards, and medals are given to graduating students in June each year.  No application is required. You will be informed about those you've earned by early June and invited to receive them at the annual Awards Ceremony.
