Brock Scholars Awards

At Brock, we’re committed to encouraging academic excellence. The Brock Scholars Awards are meant to recognize our best and brightest students every year. So, if you’ve got an 80% average, then you’re eligible for one of these scholarships.

Admission average (final grades) Amount of award
95.0%+ $13,600 ($3,400 each year)
90.0% - 94.9% $7,600 ($1,900 each year)

The final value of your award may increase or decrease if your final admission average changes when your final grades are submitted. Make sure you continue to work hard all the way to graduation so that you can get the amount you deserve!

Are you finishing a Specialist High Skills Major program at your high school? If so, and you have an admission average of 80% or higher, you’ll automatically be awarded a $500 scholarship!

Application-based awards

At Brock, we understand how busy the school year can be, and you don’t want to spend all your spare time applying to award after award. So, we’ve developed one application for all awards and bursaries offered at Brock. We call it OneApp.

The process to submit your OneApp varies depending which year you’re in. Find out when you’d need to submit your OneApp to be considered for scholarships:

  • New entering students: you’ll need to submit your OneApp twice
    • November 1 to April 15 in the year before your entrance

  • After your first year: you’ll only need to submit your OneApp once
    • August 1 to October 15
