National Scholarships are designed to recognize all-round excellence. They are awarded on the basis of outstanding academic performance to candidates who demonstrate ability for creative and innovative thought and a passion for the pursuit of learning. National Scholarships also recognize exceptional achievement in extracurricular activities such as the arts and athletics. A special emphasis is placed on a candidate's commitment to community service through ongoing contributions to school and community life.
National Scholarship applicants must be Canadian Citizens or a Permanent Resident of Canada. All applicants must have obtained a minimum overall academic average of 90% on all Grade 12U/M courses (or equivalent). National Scholarships are available only at Western's main campus and Faculty Entrance Scholarships are available only within the faculty for which the scholarship has been awarded. You must make an admission application to Western University (main campus) to be considered for these scholarships and you must register as a full-time student. International Baccalaureate and CEGEP students are eligible for consideration. The Beryl Ivey Continuing Entrance Award has a financial need component. A supplemental application in addition to the National Scholarship application is required for students to be considered.
