Scholarship Value $22,500.00
Number of Scholarships 10
Scholarships to a maximum of $17,500 or $22,500 each (payable at $3,500 or $4,500 per year for up to 5 years) are awarded to students of exceptional promise entering the University of Victoria directly from British Columbia secondary schools or British Columbia colleges; normally two of the ten scholarships are reserved for British Columbia college students.
Candidates must have a very high academic record in their last two years of study. If a student maintains a grade point average of 7.50 or higher, the scholarship is automatically renewed for each year of a studentâ??s full time study (12 or more units) until the completion of a first degree or for a maximum of four years, whichever is the shorter period. A student whose grade point average falls between 7.00 and 7.49 may file a written appeal with the Senate Committee on Awards to seek special consideration for renewal of the scholarship. No renewal is considered if a studentâ??s grade point average falls below 7.00. Selection is based on academic excellence, breadth of interest and leadership qualities.
