General Regulations: Undergraduate Scholarships, Awards, Medals and Prizes
Recipients of all undergraduate scholarships, awards, medals and prizes adjudicated by the University of Victoria are approved by the Senate Committee on Awards. The following regulations apply to both entrance and in-course scholarships, awards, medals and prizes.
Students with disabilities, including those who are on a reduced course load, are eligible to be considered for scholarships, awards, medals and prizes. Students must identify themselves to the Student Awards and Financial Aid office.
Except where the terms and conditions of an undergraduate in-course scholarship, award, medal or prize specifically state otherwise, award winners must normally enroll at UVic in the next Winter Session as a full-time student in 12.0 or more units of which 10.5 units are graded using the standard nine point scale.
Students who enroll as a full-time student and subsequently withdraw from courses, so that they fall below 12 units in the Winter Session (September to April) or fall below 6.0 units if they entered their program in the January to April term of study, will have their scholarship, award or prize withdrawn.
In-Course Scholarships, Awards, Medals and Prizes
Undergraduate students who have completed at least 12 units in two terms of study in the previous academic year are eligible to be considered for scholarships, awards, medals and prizes in the subsequent Winter Session. The majority of these scholarships, awards, medals and prizes do not require an application; they are assigned on the basis of merit or by department nomination. Others require an application. Detailed information about in-course scholarships, awards, medals and prizes including application procedures are available on the Student Awards and Financial Aid website: <www.uvic.ca/registrar/safa/in-course-scholarships>
To be eligible for any undergraduate in-course scholarship, award, medal or prize offered by UVic, an undergraduate student must normally be a full-time student registered in a minimum of 12 units of study, of which 10.5 units are graded using the standard nine point scale, in two terms in the 12 month period (May to April) immediately preceding the adjudication of the scholarships and awards.
Except where the terms and conditions of an undergraduate in-course scholarship, award, medal or prize specifically state otherwise, award winners must normally return to UVic in the next Winter Session and register and maintain enrolment as a full-time student in a minimum of 12 units to receive the in-course scholarship, award, medal or prize.
Medals or book prizes, if not presented directly by the donors or their agents, will be forwarded to the winners.
