All full-time domestic and international undergraduate degree and after-degree students registered in both fall and winter terms are eligible to apply. Students registered in part-time studies and students registered in Open Studies or graduate programs are not eligible to apply.

Following the deadline, applications will be reviewed for eligibility. A selection committee scores, ranks and makes recommendations to the Scholarship and Awards Committee who determines the final results.
Successful applicants will be notified via their Concordia e-mail and a list of recipients will be posted to the Concordia website.

Students who receive awards are issued a T4A slip for tax purposes. Please ensure that your mailing address is up to date in Online Services for Students.
