Scholarships and Academic Awards

Entrance scholarships for new international students, 2021/2022 academic year

All new international students beginning their studies in the Fall 2021 or Winter 2022 semesters (with the exception of ESL and FCAPS programs) will receive an entrance scholarship ranging from $1,000 to $2,000. Students will be notified of their exact scholarship amount with their offer of admission. These funds will be automatically added to students’ accounts in two equal instalments issued early in the first and second terms of study. Students must remain full-time in term two for the second instalment to be issued.

Sheridan offers a variety of scholarships and bursaries exclusively for international students. Although criteria differ for each award, recipients of scholarships and bursaries are typically students who display high academic standings, exemplary leadership skills and community involvement, as well as financial need.
