Donor Supported Graduate Awards
DEFINITION: an award is granted on a competitive basis for a combination of academic achievement and participation in extra-curricular activities such as volunteer work or involvement in campus sports or clubs; awards always require the submission of an application form; recipients of awards must always demonstrate financial need. An endowed (see note below) award is granted from investment income generated by the original gift to the university. An annual award is paid directly by the donor on an annual basis. The university may allot awards by faculty. The university reserves the right not to grant a specific award if no eligible applicants are identified. The stated value of awards is subject to change. Awards offered by the university are tenable only at Laurier.
Applications were available online; by submitting the online student profile(s) which were available on LORIS, students would automatically be considered for all competitive scholarship/award opportunities which are supported by donors.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: 11:59 pm, October 11, 2012
Award recipients will be notified by e-mail, to the WLU e-mail account, by late March 2013.
For information regarding all funding programs for graduate students, please refer directly to the Graduate Studies website.
Important Note on Endowments: Opportunities listed on the Student Awards Web Site that are identified as being "endowed" (see under the Description of each opportunity) are financed by investment income generated by gifts to the university. The university will grant up to a maximum of 4 percent of the value of these endowments, depending upon the amount of interest income generated on an annual basis. Consequently, these opportunities may or may not be available during any particular academic year due to the nature of financial markets. The values quoted for these opportunities on this web site represent the maximum amounts that may be available, not the actual amounts that will ultimately be granted.
