In order that awards may be equitably distributed, no student may normally hold more than one major award in any one year. Once in the program, students must have successfully completed the previous year in order to be eligible for an award.
Requirements: The payment of monetary awards, with the exception of certain prizes and graduating scholarships, is contingent upon the student maintaining full-time status in the immediate Fall and Winter terms. Unless otherwise stated in the conditions, the recipient must be in actual full-time attendance at the University of Calgary before receiving the awards. Payment of tuition and fees is the first charge against such awards. If the value of an award is stated as "tuition and fees", it is understood not to include differential fees. Supplemental, deferred and special deferred examinations or term work may affect eligibility for certain awards.
Application: The Faculty of Medicine Online Application is available mid-February in the Student Center through the myUofC portal. By submitting this application students will be considered for all Faculty of Medicine Awards and Bursaries, including the Differential Tuition Bursaries. Nominated Medicine Awards do not require an application as nomination is made automatically by the faculty.
Deadline: Submit the Faculty of Medicine Online Application on or before August 10.
Notification: Successful applicants will be notified by email in late September.
