Academic Excellence Scholarship Competition
Academic Excellence Scholarships
- Value: over $6 million offered in scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $6,000
- Values vary depending on final admission average and faculty. View the Academic Excellence Scholarship Details page for more information on these award values.
- Averages used to calculate the Academic Excellence Scholarship offers are based on the highest mark obtained regardless of the curriculum used to grant your final admission to the University of Alberta (ex. either High School Diploma, International Baccalaureate, etc).
Your award offer will be adjusted to reflect your highest final curriculum average in September.
Once you receive final admission to the University of Alberta, you will automatically be considered for an Academic Excellence Scholarship. No application is required.
To be eligible for Academic Excellence Scholarships, you must be entering the first year of an undergraduate degree program at the University of Alberta in September of the 2013-2014 academic year:
- Directly from high school with less than 24 IB, AP or A-level credits, or
- Directly from high school with less than 12 credits of university course work taken during high school through Open Studies or a similar program at another accredited post-secondary institution, or
- Following time taken off between high school and university, provided that no post-secondary credit was received during that time; AND
- have achieved a final admission average of 85% or higher in your program of study; AND
- be registered in full-time studies
If you meet the criteria, the Student Awards Office will send you an Academic Excellence Scholarship offer bundled with your final admission communication.
