Brock Scholars Awards

Brock Scholars awards are open to incoming students from anywhere in the world. To qualify, you must be entering your first undergraduate program in the Fall term (no previous post-secondary experience). No application is required.

Admission average (final grades)*Amount of award
93.0% and above$16,000 ($4,000 each year)
90.0% to 92.9%$10,000 ($2,500 each year)
85.0% to 89.9%$6,000 ($1,500 each year)
80.0% to 84.9%$4,000 ($1,000 each year)

Determining the value of your Brock Scholars Award:

The Brock Scholars Award is offered on the basis of your admission average and is renewable. The minimum average to be eligible for this award is 80 per cent*. Brock calculates your admission average to the nearest 10th of a percent. We do not round averages up or down. This award is only applicable for the offer of admission with which it is enclosed.

The final value of your award may increase or decrease if your final admission average changes. To remain eligible for the scholarship amount you have been offered, you must achieve the minimum final admission average for that scholarship range. If there is any change in the amount you will receive, you will be notified. If your final admission average is less than 80 per cent* you will no longer be eligible for a Brock Scholars award.

Final admission average:

In Ontario, a student’s final admission average is determined using the top six Grade 12U or 12M credits including prerequisites. If you complete a non-Ontario curriculum, the final admission average criteria will vary by curriculum, and will be determined by the Admissions Office. Courses taken in the summer following graduation will be used for scholarship revisions, but official transcripts will only be accepted until Oct. 31.

Scholarship disbursement:

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 course load requirements:

You must be a full-time student to receive your scholarship. If you reduce your course load to part-time status (less than 4.0 credits in the Fall/Winter terms) or withdraw from the University, the value of your scholarship will be pro-rated or withdrawn. Please advise Student Awards and Financial Aid of any change in your registration status, preferably before a change is made so we can assess the financial implications.

Scholarship confirmation:

To confirm your scholarship acceptance and receive your scholarship you must:

  1. Reply to your offer of admission by the deadline specified by the Registrar’s Office;
  2. Agree to permit the release of your name, program, and year of study and likeness (photo).

Scholarship renewal:

To renew this award you must complete at least 5.0 Undergraduate credits in the Fall/Winter sessions with a minimum 80.0% average. Renewal eligibility is assessed and awarded annually, regardless of whether the scholarship was renewed the previous year.

  • Students pursuing a pass degree (three years of study) are eligible for a total of two renewals.
  • Students pursuing an honours degree (four years of study) are eligible for a total of three renewals.
  • You are eligible for renewal only in the first three or four years of your Brock degree.

Please note: Students pursuing the Concurrent Education program are only eligible for scholarship renewals during their first degree and will not receive a scholarship renewal in their final (fifth) year.

Scholarship renewal for co-op students:

Co-op students are eligible for Brock Scholars awards and renewals. Award renewal will be assessed differently than non-co-op students to accommodate for the unique scheduling of their program. Award renewals for co-op students will be assessed after completing of each milestone 5.0 full credits, and will be based on their best 5.0 full credits. A minimum 80 per cent average in their best 4.0 full credits is required to renew the award. Milestones will be assessed when students reach 5.0, 10.0, 15.0 cumulative credits. Co-op students must contact the Student Awards office to ensure their renewal is reviewed.

All registered courses with an academic weight will be included in the student’s milestone calculation. Courses for the milestone will be calculated in the following order: full credit courses, duration two half-credit courses, and finally, duration three half-credit courses.

OSAP implications:

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