|85.0% to 89.9%||$550|
|80.0% to 84.9%||$350|
*The sessional “best 4” average is calculated using courses from your previous Fall/Winter session. A minimum of 4.0 credits in the Fall/Winter session is required to qualify for this award.
*Co-op students will be assessed after completing each milestone of 5.0 credits, based on their “best 4.0”. Work term additive credit courses used towards the co-op certification on the degree are excluded. Co-op students must fill out the Brock Entrance & Returning Scholars Renewal Form to ensure their file is reviewed..

Brock program & course load requirements
You must be a full-time undergraduate student in the Fall/Winter terms in the year used to calculate the average and the following year to receive your scholarship. If you reduce your course load to part-time status (less than 4.0 credits in the Fall/Winter terms), move out of an undergraduate program (ie: into Teacher Education or Graduate studies) or withdraw from the University, the value of your scholarship will be pro-rated or withdrawn. Please advise Student Accounts and Financial Aid of any change in your registration status, preferably before a change is made so we can assess the financial implications.
Please note: If you are intending to apply for OSAP for the current academic year, do not list this scholarship under “Award Income” in your OSAP application. We will report this and all other Brock-funded awards on your behalf.
