  • Applicants are responsible for ensuring they meet all listed eligibility criteria requirements to both apply for and hold an award. If you are found ineligible for an opportunity, this cannot be appealed. 
  • Being offered a scholarship does not guarantee admission to a graduate program.
  • Scholarship offers are conditional on an applicant also being admitted to and registering in an eligible graduate program at the University of Guelph.
