Admission Scholarships (Automatic)

Students entering the University of Calgary directly from high school this fall with an admission average of 95.00% or higher are eligible to receive a President's Admission Scholarship valued at $4,000 (non-renewable). Recipients will be notified by mail after August 15. If your admission average is 95.00% or higher, ensure that you are registered full-time in the fall term by August 15 to avoid delays in receiving a President's Admission Scholarship.

Additional admission scholarships of $2,000 each will be available to students with an admission average of less than 95.00% depending on available funds. Recipients of the $2,000 President's Admission Scholarships will be selected and notifed at the end of August.

Faculty of Law Award Competition

Successful applicants to the Faculty of Law Award Competition have been notified by email. Congratulations to the recipients!

Recipients of the Faculty of Law Differential Tuition Bursaries will be notified by email in August.

Jason Lang Scholarships

Applications for the Jason Lang Scholarships are not required at the University of Calgary. In the fall of each year, the Student Awards Office submits a list of eligible nominees to Alberta Scholarship Programs (ASP). If you qualify to receive one, ASP will send a cheque directly to your home address in December.
