Internal Donor Awards
Graduate students are encouraged to apply for any of the awards and scholarships for which they are eligible. To be eligible to apply for internal awards, scholarships and bursaries, graduate students must be registered as a full-time student.  There are two deadlines per year one in October and one in February.

Spirit of Brock Medal
The Graduate Student Spirit of Brock medal is awarded Brock's Convocation ceremonies. The medal, presented by Brock's Board of Trustees, recognizes the academic excellence, leadership and community service of a graduating student from a master's or doctoral program. We invite faculty members to encourage students, who they feel best exemplify these qualities, to apply for the award through the Office of Student Awards and Financial Aid.
