The prestigious Laurier Scholars Award is an annual entrance scholarship to offer high-achieving students the opportunity to participate in a dynamic learning environment that will foster innovative thinking and ethical, visionary leadership.
Award recipients join a community of scholars and receive mentorship, networking, research and experiential learning opportunities throughout their degree.
Seven students will be selected to receive a $40,000 entrance scholarship. The Laurier Scholars Award includes $7,500 per year for up to four years and an experiential learning award of $10,000. The experiential award may be used to fund a summer research assistantship, international exchange or another hands-on learning opportunity that connects in-class knowledge to learning experiences outside the classroom.
Students are required to meet the eligibility criteria to be considered for the Laurier Scholars Award, which includes:
- attending a postsecondary institution for the first time;
- an admission average of 90% or higher;
- an offer of admission to full-time studies starting in fall 2022.
The application deadline for fall 2022 is February 15, 2022 at 11:59 p.m.
