Entrance Scholarship Guarantee

Trent consistently invests more in scholarships and bursaries than any other university of our size in Canada. We want to ensure that you are rewarded for the effort you are putting into your studies, which is why we created the Trent University Entrance Scholarship Guarantee Program.

How does it work?

Students entering Trent directly from a secondary school that follows Ministry approved Ontario curriculum will be automatically considered. Offers of guaranteed scholarship for September 2013 will be awarded starting in mid-March and will be based on your admissions average, as calculated by Trent’s Admissions Office. At that time, scholarship recipients will be officially notified regarding their level of guaranteed scholarship based on the chart below:

  • Admissions average of 95% and above = $3,000
  • Admissions average of 90-94.9% = $2,500
  • Admissions average of 85-89.9% = $1,500
  • Admissions average of 80-84.9% = $1,000

Even if your final admissions average decreases, you will not lose your entrance scholarship, as long as you still meet the minimum admission requirements outlined in your Offer of Admission letter and register in a full course load of five full credits for the 2014-15 fall/winter session.

View the full scholarships chart.

If your final admissions average increases, you may be eligible for an even larger scholarship – potentially as much as full tuition.

Academic achievement is recognized at Trent University. Contact scholarships@trentu.ca to explore your scholarship potential.

Scholarships for Home Schooled Students

Only students who have objective, third party grades, will be offered entrance scholarships.

Students who are home schooled until grade 11 and then take grade 12 courses at a Canadian high school will be considered as Canadian High School students. Credits may be gained by attending a Canadian high school or by correspondence, night school, etc.

Non-Canadian High School students may qualify for scholarship based on SAT scores. This group will not be extended special offers, such as the full tuition scholarship, but will be eligible to receive the standard value scholarships.
