Canadian high school entrance awards

If you’ve got an academic average of 82% or above, then you’ll receive one of these generous entrance scholarships from Brescia:

Brescia Scholarship for Academic Excellence Unlimited 82.0%-84.9% $2,000/year

These scholarships are renewable each year if you maintain an 80% average when taking 5.0 concurrent courses in the September to April terms. So, if you keep your grades up throughout your undergrad, you could receive up to $16,000!

Program-based awards

On top of receiving an entrance scholarship, you could also receive a program-based award! Just like the entrance scholarship, these awards are determined by your final admission average if you’re registered for full-time studies.
