Western Admission Scholarships - Eligibility for our unlimited Western Admission Scholarships is based on successful completion of the secondary school diploma and on the student’s final admission average, including prerequisite courses, as calculated by Western for the program to which the student has confirmed acceptance. No application is required for consideration. Western will determine averages for applicants who are not studying in a Canadian secondary school curriculum based on: curriculum, grading practices, and grading scale interpretation.
National Scholarship Program - National Scholarships are designed to recognize all-round excellence. They are awarded on the basis of outstanding academic performance to candidates who demonstrate ability for creative and innovative thought and a passion for the pursuit of learning. National Scholarships also recognize exceptional achievement in extracurricular activities such as the arts and athletics. A special emphasis is placed on a candidate's commitment to community service through ongoing contributions to school and community life.
In addition to the unlimited Western Admission Scholarships listed above, there are admission scholarships available that are specifically for international students beginning full-time first year studies at Western’s main campus. These other admission scholarships for international students are created by donors and vary in value and criteria. Please note that these international student scholarships can be awarded in combination with a Western Admission Scholarship or may replace a Western Admission Scholarship.
