Scholarships and Bursaries
If you have been admitted to Carleton with an admissions average of 80 percent or better, you will automatically be considered for a renewable Entrance Scholarship. You may be offered a renewable Entrance Scholarship provided you are entering Carleton for the first time and have no previous attendance at post secondary educational institutions.
If you are an excellent student transferring from another Canadian university or college program to a full-time undergraduate program at Carleton, you may be eligible for one of our scholarships for transfer students.
Carleton’s highest awards are Prestige Scholarships – these scholarships require an application (Deadline: March 1).
