Scholarships and Awards

Scholarships and Awards

The Marine Institute scholarship program comprises scholarships, awards and bursaries that are internally administered. You will find on this page information on general guidelines; a link to our academic calendar pages summarizing each scholarship, award and bursary; and, guidelines for awardings. Information on some external scholarships that Marine Institute students may be interested in learning more about is also provided on this page.

Scholarships and awards at the Marine Institute are awarded twice per academic year, typically in November and March.

The general scholarship and awards application is made available in the beginning of the Fall and Winter semesters and students must submit an application in the term they wish to be considered for scholarships and awards. Some scholarships and awards may require additional information and application. A listing of these applications is also provided below.

In the Fall semester, students will be automatically assessed for the university’s entrance scholarships and no application is required for these entrance scholarships.

Scholarship and award eligibility guidelines can be found here.

General Guidelines for the Fall Semester

Scholarships and awards in the Fall semester are normally awarded on the basis of entrance average or performance in the previous semester's work.

To submit a general application students should:

  • be a registered full-time student in the current academic year;
  • have obtained at least a 70% average over the two terms of the preceding year;
  • have taken a full course load or no more than a one course reduction in the previous year (eg. if a student in first year was required to take 17 courses over Term 1, Term 2, and Technical Session, he/she must have taken at least 16 courses); and,
  • have not failed courses being considered in the current scholarship competition.
