As part of the National Scholarship Program, three scholarships worth $50,000 each are available to exceptional international students. Selection is based on outstanding academic performance, creative and innovative thought, and significant achievement in extracurricular activities. Students must complete a National Scholarship application which includes an essay and a nomination from their school. The application is available in mid-November. Visit our Office of the Registrar webpage for additional information.
International students applying directly from secondary school for admission to Western’s main campus for first year, full-time studies may be considered for the Admission Scholarships below. Admission scholarships are unlimited in number and are awarded automatically in September to all qualified first-year students.
Eligibility is based on successful completion of secondary school, Western's calculation of your final admission average, and prerequisite courses related to the program of study you will pursue at Western. A separate application is not required for consideration. Eligible students will receive official notifications about the Western Admission Scholarships in late August.
