Full Details and Eligibility Requirements

Any Canadian student entering their first year at Trent with a final admission average of 80% or higher may apply for a Trent University Prestigious scholarship. To qualify for a scholarship, students must be enrolled in a full-time, degree seeking program.

The prestigious scholarships are renewable for up to four years of undergraduate study provided the student maintains a minimum 80% average in 5.0 Trent University credits during the previous academic year. 

A student may only receive one major Trent University entrance scholarship. For example, if you received an offer for a Trent University National Renewable entrance scholarship, and you have been selected for a Prestigious scholarship, the National Renewable scholarship will be replaced by the higher value Prestigious scholarship.

Students not offered a prestigious scholarship are automatically considered for a Trent University National Renewable Entrance Scholarship.  All Canadian students new to Trent University with a final admission average of 80% or greater are considered for an entrance scholarship; no application is required.  Scholarship values range from $1,000 per year to $3,000.   


How to Apply

Students must apply for Prestigious Scholarships. One application qualifies you for all prestigious scholarships.

The application form can be found on your myTrent applicant portal under the My Account tab.

Application Deadline: The deadline to apply is April 1.

Students with a final entrance average of 80% or higher who did not apply or are not eligible for a Prestigious Scholarship will automatically be considered for a Trent University National Renewable Entrance Scholarship.
