Posted by York & U on January 12, 2013


While your calendar is probably filled up with red inked deadlines, here are a few additional and important ones to make special note.

February 1: The first of February marks the deadline for the Governors’ Award for Distinction. The award grants students a total of $8,000 per year over four years (plus the cost of residence for first year). Other awards with a February 1 deadline include the Award for Achievement-York University and the Harry Arthurs Alumni Families Entrance Scholarship. Both awards have different criteria and a different application process. Make sure to visit the awards page for full details about eligibility and how to apply.

Student Financial Profile Deadlines: The deadline for applying to awards that are catered to students with disabilities through the Student Financial Profile (SFP) is January 21. Undergraduate bursary applications, also submitted through the SFP, must be submitted by March 11. Graduate students have until January 15 to apply for bursaries offered through the SFP.

May 1: It seems far away, but May will be here before you know it. Make note of these deadlines note before it’s too late. May 1 is the deadline to apply for a number of awards offered through the Student Financial Profile as well as the Chancellor Bennett Entrance Award.

    Hi, I’m apply for undergrad at york and I was wondering can you apply for these awards if you haven’t been accepted? I have already applied but I’m not sure when I will hear back and I just wanted to know so I could prepare for it either way. Thank you!
