2006-2007 Undergraduate Calendar

Scholarships, Bursaries, Awards and Financial Assistance  
Scholarships Students need not apply for scholarships administered by the University unless otherwise indicated. Scholarships and awards are allocated at the discretion of the Senate Committee on Undergraduate Student Affairs. In order to ensure equitable distribution of funds, the Committee reserves the right to limit the cumulative monetary value of scholarships and awards that any one student may receive. Normally, to be eligible for awards other than an entrance scholarship, a student must be presently registered full-time at Brock and have successfully completed four or more credits in the previous Fall/Winter Session. Students with special needs, who are full-time but carrying fewer than four credits because of the impact of a disability, are also eligible for scholarships, as recommended by the Associate Vice-President (Student Services). Awards based on donations cannot be guaranteed by the University and can only be forwarded after the funds have been received from the donor. A student who withdraws from the University will have their scholarship pro-rated. Please note: An asterisk (*) appears beside the value of an endowed scholarship. The figure shown is the amount awarded last year. The value will vary from year to year depending upon income earned by the endowment. Please visit http://www.brocku.ca/studentawards/ for more information. Entrance Scholarships for New/Entering Students All applicants, who have not previously attended a post-secondary institution and who apply for full-time study at the University on the basis of an OSSD, are automatically considered for Brock Entrance Scholars Awards. Entrance scholarships are awarded on the basis of the six grade 12 U or M courses used to establish the student's final admission average and are subject to the availability of funds. The minimum average required for the awarding of a scholarship is determined each year by the Senate Committee on Undergraduate Student Affairs. Notification of an award is made together with the offer of admission. Brock Entrance Scholars Award Awarded to entering students with no previous post-secondary experience. Initial offers are made based on secondary school grades available at the time of admission. The offers are reviewed when final grades are submitted and will be altered if the final average falls into a new category. Students must also submit a Student Profile before the final award is made. Scholarship values for 2006 entry are:
- $10,000 (renewable $2500 per year**) for averages 94.0 percent+
- $6,000 (renewable $1500 per year**) for averages 90.0 percent ­ 93.9 percent
- $4,000 (renewable $1000 per year**) for averages 86.0 percent ­ 89.9 percent
- $1,550 ($500 in year one, $350 renewable for years 2, 3 and 4**) for averages 80.0 percent ­ 85.9 percent
**Renewable if student maintains an 80.0 percent average on a minimum of 4.0 credits in the Fall/Winter session. Students pursuing a pass degree will be considered for two consecutive renewals only. In-Course Scholarships for Returning Students To be considered for Brock Returning Scholars Awards and a number of donor in-course scholarships, students must normally have completed four credits or more in the previous Fall/Winter Session with an overall average of 80.0 percent. Students with special needs who are full-time but carrying fewer than four credits because of the impact of a disability, as recommended by the Associate Vice-President (Student Services) are also eligible for in-course scholarships. The minimum average required for the awarding of Brock Returning Scholars Awards is determined each year by the Senate Committee on Undergraduate Student Affairs. Brock Returning Scholars Award Awarded to continuing full-time undergraduate students who have attained a minimum of 80.0 percent on 4.0 or more credits in the previous Fall and Winter Sessions. $1500 for averages over 93.9 percent $1000 for averages above 89.9 percent $550 for averages above 84.9 percent $350 for averages above 79.9 percent *Students receiving a renewal of a Brock Scholars Award will not receive a Returning Scholars Award. Bursaries Bursary funds are never adequate to provide full support or even a major part of support for students. Rather, bursaries are intended to assist students whose personal resources (including eligibility for loans) are normally adequate or nearly so, but whose immediate circumstances have created a financial crisis or limited shortage. All students who are eligible to do so, are expected to have applied for assistance under the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) and to have accepted all loans granted under that program. Acceptance of a bursary implies the commitment of the recipient to complete the current academic year. A student who withdraws from the University will have their bursary pro-rated. Please note: An asterisk (*) appears beside the value of an endowed bursary. The figure shown is the amount awarded last year. The value will vary from year to year depending upon the income earned by the endowment. Bursaries are granted for the current academic year and applications may be submitted at anytime during the term. To be considered for some donor bursaries, applications must be submitted by October 15 except where otherwise noted. Bursary applications are available on the Student Awards and Financial Aid website at http://www.brocku.ca/studentawards/.
