Entrance Scholarships
Each year St. Jerome's University offers a number of entrance scholarships to students who are registered through St. Jerome's and are entering their first year of undergraduate studies directly from secondary school. All Ontario secondary school students applying to St. Jerome’s University are automatically considered for an entrance scholarship.  In addition, we are pleased to offer awards to deserving students and residents within the broader St. Jerome's University community that require an online application.
 
Note: students on their co-op term are not eligible to receive scholarships until their next academic term.
