Established on behalf of the Devine Family, Mr. Peter J. Devine, a former Board of Governors member, with the assistance of the Ontario government's OTSS program. These scholarships will be given out once every four years, unless the incumbent fails to qualify. The scholarship is renewed in years two, three and four with continued demonstrated financial need and full-time registration; students are required to register for no less than 2.0 credits each semester. Students should complete the online Financial Need Assessment Form for Entrance Awards (E.N.A.F.) application as soon as they receive their Acknowledgment Package from Admission Services (this will come automatically after an application for admissions has been submitted by the student) and complete the "Devine Family Scholarship Application". Deadline to submit the complete application (both parts, the E.N.A.F. and the application) is April 15th of the application year. Scholarship offers will be made in May. This award is not tenable with the President's Scholarships, the Lincoln Alexander Chancellor's Scholarships or the Chancellors' Scholarships, but can be held with all other entrance awards.
Students who are Aboriginal (First Nations, Inuit and Métis); or a person with a disability; or a racialized person entering any University of Guelph undergraduate degree program with a minimum 80% admission average. Preference will be given to students who are Black Canadians. Additionally, students must meet the government-mandated terms for receipt of an OTSS award (see General Statements on Awards).
