Scholarships are awarded based on academic achievement, extracurricular involvement, leadership experience, community service, and work/internships experience.

Mount Allison awards more than $2 million in scholarships, bursaries, and financial aid each year. In 2018, approximately 74 per cent of our entering class received an entrance award, making scholarships an ideal way to help offset the cost of your post-secondary studies.

Types of scholarships

Entrance scholarships
Entrance scholarships range from $4,000 to $20,000. You will be automatically considered for entrance scholarships when you submit your comprehensive admission and scholarship application. You must have a calculated admission average of 80 per cent (or equivalent) to be eligible.

Designated scholarships
Designated scholarships offer some of our top awards. You can apply for many of them within your admission application, but some require an additional application or supplemental information.

Awards offer assistance to incoming full-time students who demonstrate exceptional academic achievement, community involvement, and/or financial need. You will automatically be considered for awards when you apply for admission to Mount Allison.

External scholarships
Many external scholarships are also available and we have compiled resources to help you find them.
