Awards Application Procedure

Award applications are available through the MyUofC portal ( and must be submitted by the respective deadlines. As part of the process of applying for admission, the University of Calgary issues a UCID number to each prospective student. This UCID number (or student ID) is required to apply for student awards. Admission to the University of Calgary is not required before applying for awards.

Award Payment Information

With the exception of certain prizes and scholarships for graduating students, or if otherwise stated in the award conditions, payment of awards is contingent upon recipients maintaining full-time enrolment at the University of Calgary through the upcoming Fall and Winter Terms. Exceptions to these registration requirements are made for students participating in official exchanges and term abroad programs where tuition is paid to the University of Calgary. To support international study experiences, a University of Calgary student attending an international post-secondary institution as a full-time visiting student on a letter of permission and paying tuition to that institution will be reviewed for awards eligibility on a case-by-case basis. Contact the Awards Office directly for more information.

Payment of tuition and fees is the first charge against undergraduate student awards. Award values stated as “Tuition and Fees” do not include differential fees.

For most award competitions, the award funds are split into two equal payments over Fall and Winter Terms and are automatically applied to outstanding tuition and fees. Excess award funds are processed on October 25 (Fall Term) and on February 25 (Winter Term) by direct deposit to the recipient’s bank account. Award recipients must provide their banking information to the University through the MyUofC portal (

Policy and Regulations

Undergraduate awards are distributed equitably among the most deserving students, and adhere to the terms of reference.

If a student is granted an award, the University of Calgary reserves the right to release pertinent recipient information to award donors, high schools, provincial funding bodies, University of Calgary faculty and administrative offices and public news agents. Specific information may be used by the University for promotional purposes.

Award recipients who no longer meet the program/registration/course load requirements, due to extenuating circumstances, may wish to submit an official awards appeal. Contact the Student Awards Office directly by email:

Students with incomplete grades are not considered for awards.

The university assumes liability for the payment of scholarships, bursaries, prizes and other awards only to the extent that gifts from donors or returns from investments for these purposes will permit.

This Calendar is published a considerable time before the beginning of the next academic term, therefore the University of Calgary reserves the right to make whatever changes circumstances require, including the cancellation or addition of particular awards.
