Simon Fraser University in Canada is inviting applications for the Undergraduate Scholars Entrance Scholarships for International Students in 2021.
SFU operates according to British Columbia University Act, with two governing bodies. The board of governors is responsible for the business of the university, and the senate presides over academic affairs. The president, supported by the vice-presidents and deans, oversees the management and administration of the institution. The chancellor is a member of the senate and the board of governors, though not an employee of the university.
Consistently ranked among Canada’s top comprehensive universities and named to the Times Higher Education list of 100 world universities under 50, SFU is also the first Canadian member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, the world’s largest college sports association.
Worth of Award
The scholarship covers;
- $10,000 up to an amount sufficient to cover tuition and mandatory supplementary fees
Further funding, in the form of a living allowance, may be offered to support exceptionally talented students with demonstrated financial need
Note: The University assumes that students will arrange their own funding to meet immigration requirements for the issuance and/or renewal of student authorizations and visas. An offer of admission to SFU is not an offer of financial support. Bursaries administered by SFU, awarded on the basis of financial need, are provided as supplemental funding and cannot be used for the core funding required to meet immigration requirements.
The following are the eligibility criteria;
- Scholarships are available to domestic and international high school students admitted for the fall term to an undergraduate degree in any faculty.
- Minimum grades in the 90% range or a minimum of 31 International Baccalaureate points
- SFU recognizes high school students who demonstrate excellence in both their academic and extracurricular activities.
