If you are admitted to an undergraduate program at Western’s main campus directly from secondary school, and are registered in first-year full-time studies you will be automatically considered for one of these admission scholarships; you do not need to submit an application. These scholarships are available to domestic and international students.

  • The Western Scholarship of Excellence cannot be combined with another admission scholarship.
  • Applicants to all undergraduate programs will be considered for this scholarship, but the scholarship offers are program-specific, meaning that you must register in the program specified in the scholarship offer to remain eligible for the scholarship.
  • You must accept your offer of admission to the program specified in your scholarship offer by the admission response deadline to retain the scholarship offer.
  • You must register in full-time studies (minimum 3.5 courses) to remain eligible for the scholarship. If you enroll in a part-time course load, reduce your enrolment to part-time or withdraw from the academic year, you will not be eligible to keep the scholarship.
  • If you do not pursue a study abroad experience, the study abroad portion of the scholarship funding is forfeited.

Western Ontario University Scholarship Requirements and Terms

  • The candidate must meet the admission conditions as specified in your offer package.
  • You must be applying for admission directly from secondary school to be eligible for an Admission Scholarship. Generally, students who have attended a post-secondary institution, or students who attended a post-secondary institution and then returned to secondary school, are not eligible. Please direct any questions regarding scholarship eligibility for your specific situation to 519-661-2100
  • Generally home-schooled applicants are not eligible for consideration for admission scholarships.
  • You must be registered for full-time studies (minimum 3.5 courses) at main campus to be eligible. If you enrol in a part-time course load, reduce your enrolment to part-time or withdraw from the academic year, you will not be eligible to keep your admission scholarship.
  • The final admission average calculation for 101 applicants includes prerequisite courses for the student’s selected program.
  • Admission averages are NOT rounded to the nearest whole percentage for admission scholarship consideration.
  • Western will determine averages for applicants who are not studying in a Canadian secondary school curriculum based on curriculum, grading practices, and grading scale interpretation.
  • If you do not pursue a study abroad experience, the study abroad portion of the scholarship funding is forfeited.
  • Admission Scholarships cannot be deferred.
  • Students taking secondary school courses during the summer prior to attending Western, that may affect their scholarship eligibility, must ensure that their final summer school grades are received by the Admissions office by August 31st, prior to the beginning of their first year at Western. It is the student’s responsibility to verify that their high school has submitted all final grades to the Admissions office. Changes and appeals related to admission scholarship eligibility will not be considered after August 31st.
  • Students eligible for a Western Scholarship of Distinction or a Western Admission Scholarship will be sent notification to their email account in late August.
  • Admission scholarships are not confirmed until after the first installment of fees are due, therefore admission scholarships cannot be deducted from the first installment of fees (see note for exception for OSAP recipients)*. Once the scholarship is confirmed, it will be applied directly to the fee account before the end of September, and can be used toward the second installment of fees. If the application of the scholarship results in a credit on the fee account, a refund will be issued to the student in early-mid November via cheque or direct deposit to their bank account (if the student has enrolled in this option). Students should enrol in direct deposit through their Student Center account. Once logged in they should click on “Enrol in Direct Deposit” in the Finances section and input their banking information.

*Note for students in receipt of OSAP: If your Admission Scholarship is applied to your account (as Anticipated Aid or applied toward the balance owing) prior to your first installment of OSAP being released, the scholarship amount will be used toward your first installment of fees, reducing the amount of OSAP that is remitted toward your fee account for first installment.

For students admitted prior to the 2021-2022 year who are in receipt of the Western Continuing Admission Scholarship:

To retain the Continuing Admission Scholarship a student must, during the Fall/Winter academic year (September to April) fulfill the following requirements: a) complete a prescribed academic program requiring 5.0 or more courses as required by the respective program; b) take the full complement of the prescribed courses of the academic program (both principal and elective courses) within the academic year (September to April); letter of permission courses taken during the academic year will not count toward the course load. c) achieve an overall average of at least 80% , and d) remain registered in a program at main campus.
