EEB Awards

No applications are required. Students enrolled in EEB programs are automatically considered for the awards, if they meet the eligibility requirements. 

Please note if an award states that financial need “must” be considered, students on OSAP will only be considered.  For awards that are based on academic merit with “financial need considered”, students on OSAP, as well as out of province students whose financial information is on file with the Faculty of Arts and Science, will also be considered.
