Number, Value and Duration of Scholarships
Up to five (5) scholarships will be available at the bachelor or diploma level.
These scholarships cover the full cost of tuition and are available for up to four (4) consecutive years or until a first bachelor degree or first diploma is obtained.
An eligible applicant must:
- Be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident;
- Be a full-time resident of the township of Langley municipality, British Columbia;
- Be entering or already enrolled in full-time studies in a first bachelor degree or first diploma program in the 2022-2023 academic year;
- have a minimum cumulative average of 70% (or equivalent) over the last three terms of available marks*. Non-academic courses such as career or personal development related courses will not be considered. Universities Canada’s policy on calculation of average has been developed in consultation with university and college admissions and financial aid officers from across the country. There is enormous diversity among the applicants for this scholarship program. Furthermore, and of great significance, is the fact that grading systems differ among educational institutions. It is Universities Canada’s policy to calculate the academic average of applicants so that it reflects an academically well-rounded individual, while recognizing the differences in programs of study. For this purpose, the most recent, followed by the highest available grades of four courses will be considered. In the case of high school transcripts, the following categories will be considered: Language, Social Sciences, Mathematics and Sciences. Six courses are chosen for each applicant, with no more than two in each category. If there are not enough available courses, the calculation of academic average may be based on four or five courses.
- Canadian institutions which have recognized degree/diploma-granting powers, or their affiliates (e.g. universities, colleges/CEGEPs - technical diploma).
