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 $5,000.   


How to Apply

Students must apply for 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 awarded a Prestigious Scholarship will automatically be considered for a Trent University National Renewable Entrance Scholarship.
