2016-2017: Process for applying for scholarships and awards
The Student Awards Office has a “General Student Profile" and "Faculty Specific" Profile(s)
that greatly reduces the amount of work associated with
scholarship/award applications. With this application process, students
are asked to submit their "General Student Profile" and
subsequently, the applicable "Faculty Specific Profile" as well as their
financial statement (this form is included in the All Student General
Profile). Once these profiles are submitted, the Student Awards Office
will automatically consider applicants for all scholarship/award
opportunities that fit the program and year of study as well as their
particular interests and volunteer experiences. While the submission
the financial statement (included in the student profile) is not
mandatory, it is strongly recommended as many of the opportunities have a
“financial need” component.
These profiles all open to all students to complete, in graduate or undergraduate programs, including all full and part time students, international students, and out of province students.
By telling us about yourself through the completion of these student profiles, we can then determine if you are eligible for, and possibly selected to receive a competitive scholarship, award, or donor supported bursary. In some cases, if more information is required, our office would contact you advising of what is required in order to be considered for other, more specific, awards opportunities.
Visit the Student Awards Search Engine, to view opportunities which are available to all current students at Wilfrid Laurier University.
For 2016/2017, the submission deadline will be on Thursday, Sept. 29th. Profiles will be available online on LORIS starting in early August 2016.
