IS SCHOLARSHIP ANNUAL?
Concordia University Entrance Scholarship program is a yearly award for international students to study in Canada. You are strongly advised to visit this website regularly to see more scholarship opportunities.
Important Information: “Some scholarships require you to first apply to the host university for admission before you can be considered for scholarships. Fortunately, it doesn’t cost any fee to apply for admission as an international student.
If the scholarship eligibility criteria require you to hold an offer of admission from the university and you will be automatically awarded the scholarship”. While few others require you to first be a newly admitted student (fresh student) of the university before being awarded a scholarship, hence the need for you to step up efforts in your quest to study abroad.
Also, ensure you first read the eligibility criteria and application procedure of every scholarship opportunity published on this website carefully before commencing your application because some scholarships don’t necessarily require you to first apply to the host university for admission or be a fresh student as stated earlier.
You are strongly advised to check back on this website regularly for more scholarship opportunities.
Applicants from all countries including citizens of Canada are eligible to apply for the Concordia University Entrance Scholarship.
WHERE CAN SCHOLARSHIP BE TAKEN?
Scholarships can be taken at Concordia University Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
WHO CAN APPLY?
To become eligible for Concordia University Entrance Scholarship, applicants must be:
- entering their first-year of post-secondary study directly from high school. Concordia will also consider applicants who have:
a) taken time off between high school and post-secondary studies
b) completed university-level credits while in high school.
c) attended a non-accredited program at a post-secondary institution and earned 9 or less transfer credits.
Applicants who enrolled in a post-secondary institution after the completion of high school are not eligible.
- enrolled in a degree program in Arts, Management or Science.
- registered in a minimum of 80% of a full-course load (12 credits) in each semester. Recipients whose registration drops below the required 80% minimum will immediately forfeit their scholarship.
HOW TO APPLY
There is no separate application required. Concordia identifies eligible students through the admission process, choosing from those who submit their admission Application Forms and final (interim) high school transcripts before April 1st. Eligible scholarship recipients are sent a preliminary scholarship offer notification letter.
HOW DO I RENEW MY SCHOLARSHIP?
To renew scholarships in subsequent years, students must:
- be registered in a minimum 80% of a full-course load (12 credits) in each subsequent semester.
- maintain a minimum overall GPA of 3.2 during the academic year for all scholarships valued below $3,750 or a minimum GPA of 3.5 for scholarships valued $3,750 or greater. Courses completed in Spring and Summer Sessions are not included in the GPA calculation.
The renewal period shall not exceed the length of the student’s degree program. Students who lose their scholarship entitlement due to reduced course load or low GPA may have their scholarship reinstated following an academic year of study that satisfies the registration and GPA requirements. However, their eligibility period will not be extended.
