Scholarships and Academic Awards

Entrance scholarships for new international students, 2022/2023 academic year

All new international students beginning their full-time postsecondary studies (ESL excluded) in Spring 2022, Fall 2022 or Winter 2023 semesters in Year 1 (Term 1) 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 2 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.

Sheridan Bachelor Degree Entrance Scholarship

This scholarship is to recognize international students with high academic achievement who have obtained a GPA average of 75% and higher. Students will be automatically considered for this award based on the transcripts submitted at the time of application. Award recipients will be notified via email.

Two-year Post-graduate Certificate Bundles

International students can apply for two consecutive graduate certificate programs at the same time, to create a two-year Graduate Certificate Bundle. International students starting one of the bundles in Fall 2022 and Winter 2023 are eligible for a $2,000 Bundle Scholarship. Four instalments of $500 will be awarded from the first to fourth term.
