In-Course Scholarships (automatic consideration for all qualified applicants)

How Do I Qualify  for an In-course Scholarship?

In-course awards are made to students on the basis of coursework completed at Mount Saint Vincent University. The overall eligibility criteria for in-course awards require a minimum GPA of 3.5 plus nomination by faculty. All faculty are encouraged to nominate their superior students for scholarship consideration when they submit final marks each session which are recorded for use by the Committee on Admissions and Scholarships. Some scholarships require a more specific kind of nomination as noted in the scholarship description, while others are awarded on the basis of departmental recommendations which is also noted in the scholarship description where this is the case.

When the Committee on Admissions and Scholarships considers eligible students for scholarships, both overall GPA and faculty nominations are taken into account in a 4:1 ratio. Since the amount of scholarship money available in any one year is finite, scholarships are allocated according to each year’s cohort of eligible candidates. Thus from one year to another the academic average and faculty nominations of scholarship holders may vary and those who held scholarships previously may find their scholarships awarded at the same value, increased, decreased, or discontinued. It is possible for a student who did not have an entrance scholarship to earn one as an in-course student under either the full-time or part-time programs.

How Do I Apply for an In-course Scholarship?

Students are advised to read each scholarship description carefully to determine whether they need to make a special application, submit specific letters of reference, or be nominated by departmental faculty.

Merit Scholarships

These scholarships are made possible by the generous donations of friends, alumnae, staff and faculty to both the University’s general scholarship endowment and the year-to-year scholarship operating funds.
Note: Some endowed scholarships are tenable by either full-time or part-time students. These awards are made on the recommendation of the particular academic department. Recommended students must, however, have an overall GPA of 3.5 or higher in their most recent coursework, including coursework outside of the nominating department, in order for the departmental recommendation to be ratified by the Committee on Admissions and Scholarships.

Full-Time In-Course & Merit Scholarships
Once enrolled in Mount coursework, students are considered at the conclusion of the September to April academic year (or if a co-op student on work term, at the conclusion of the September to August year) on the basis of having achieved an overall minimum GPA of 3.5 or better in three units, and having received faculty scholarship nomination. Students are reminded that meeting the minimum eligibility criteria does not guarantee receipt of a scholarship or renewal of a previous scholarship.

Part-Time In-Course & Merit Scholarships
Part-time students are eligible to apply for scholarships based on achievement in the most recent 3.0 units of work completed. They must also meet the minimum GPA of 3.5 in these 3.0 units and must receive faculty nomination. Due to the varying patterns of part-time study, part-time students must make application for consideration prior to May 15 in any given year. These scholarships are in the form of course tuition credit vouchers. Part-time merit scholarships are valid for use between September 1 of the year in which they are awarded through August 31 of the following year.
