With the University of Ottawa’s automatic scholarship program, if you’ve had very good grades in high school, you start off with an Admission Scholarship for your first year of university. After that, you receive a $1,000 Merit Scholarship for each term that you study full time at the University and meet the required average.

What if your grades in high school could have been better, but you finally find what motivates you to push harder in university? If you have the required average starting in your second term of first year, you automatically receive a Merit Scholarship. And if things don’t go so well one term? No worries — you start with a clean slate each term so you have a better chance of getting a scholarship for the following term.
