The Grade 11 Merit awards give current high school students a way to apply for scholarships before graduating from high school!
Do you like free money?
You can find it at the University of Lethbridge through a wide range of scholarships and awards. Many of these awards are given out based on your grades, but other criteria like leadership, financial need, community involvement, or artistic ability may also be considered.
While not all awards require you to apply, you will access more award opportunities when you complete the online award application. Keep in mind that any uLethbridge awards you receive will be dependent on your decision to attend the University of Lethbridge.
Grade 11 Merit Awards
You don't have to wait until you're in Grade 12 to start planning for university, especially if your plans include the University of Lethbridge! Our Grade 11 Merit Award is given to students who fill out our online form by June 30 in their Grade 11 year.
It's a simple process: no essay or letters of recommendation necessary. Awards will be given to the highest achieving Grade 11 students.
The amount of the scholarship is based on your high school average, so if you've got excellent grades, be sure to try for this award! But remember, you have to actually attend the University of Lethbridge to receive a scholarship!
Board of Governor's Admission Scholarships
If you apply early for admission to uLethbridge — that is, before the December 15 early admission deadline — you'll be considered for an admission scholarship! The value of this award is based on your Grade 12 marks: the higher your grades, the better your chances at getting funded.
All you have to do is apply early for admission to uLethbridge. You can even receive a Board of Governor's scholarship in conjunction with a Grade 11 Merit Award, so make sure to apply if you've got good grades in high school.
