Brock Scholars Awards

Renewals for Brock Scholars awards are awarded at the end each Fall/Winter session based on your sessional average. The value of your renewal will be outlined on your admission offer. These awards are renewed automatically each year and placed onto your student account.

If you are pursuing an undergraduate degree and you do not hold a renewable Brock Scholars Award you are still eligible for our Returning Scholars Award based on the following criteria:

Sessional "best 4" average*Amount of award
94.0% and above$1,500
90.0% to 93.9%$1,000
85.0% to 89.9%$550
80.0% to 84.9%$350

*The sessional “best 4” average is calculated using courses from your 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”. Co-op students must contact the Student Accounts & Financial Aid office to ensure their file is reviewed. Please e-mail Central@brocku.ca to request this review.

Your scholarship will be applied directly to your tuition and/or residence fees. This will take place before classes begin in September, reducing the amount you owe to the University. Scholarships cannot be used for first instalments or down payments.

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Education or Graduate studies) or withdraw from the University, the value of your scholarship will be pro-rated or withdrawn.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.

OSAP implications:

Please note: If you are intending to apply for OSAP for the 2016/2017 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.
