Quest University Canada Scholarships for Canadian and International Students
Scholarships recognize the achievement and contributions students have made to their school and local community, contributions we expect they will continue to make at Quest. All students, regardless of their country of origin, are eligible to apply for scholarships and/or financial aid. All Quest Scholarships are considered entrance awards and cannot be applied for after the March 1 application deadline leading to your first year at Quest.
How to Apply
Scholarship applications can be submitted at any time before the relevant deadline but will not be reviewed until the deadline. All application materials submitted for admission will be considered during the candidate's scholarship award review.
Students wishing to apply for scholarships must complete the Scholarship Application Form and submit a résumé, along with two recommendation letters. Your résumé should clearly outline your experiences and achievements. This may include employment, volunteer work, gap year projects, awards, hobbies, skills and so on.
We ask that one letter of recommendation be an academic reference, and one be a character reference. We will consider up to a maximum of four letters of recommendation. If students send more it is at the discretion of the admissions committee which four will be considered. Letters must be submitted as PDF files, signed and written on official letterhead, or be sent directly from the person writing them. Letters that do not meet these criteria will not be considered.
Students applying for the David Strangway Award for Excellence must also submit a maximum 300-word personal introduction to the Faculty Selection Committee. All documents must be submitted in a package together before the March 1 deadline.
The Scholarship Review Committee will evaluate each student's application for financial awards (scholarship and/or aid) only once. After an award package has been offered, no other financial awards applications will be accepted.
EXTERNAL SCHOLARSHIP RESOURCES
- Banks and other companies often sponsor students or hold scholarship competitions
- Ask your parents' or guardians' employers, or your employer, whether they have a scholarship program.
- Use a search engine like Google to search for scholarships related to your interests (e.g., in the past, Toyota has sponsored an Environmental Scholarship), your region (e.g., Toronto scholarships), or your background (e.g., South Asian scholarships).
- You should also check whether your school district or board offers any scholarships
