UWSA – University of Windsor Students' Alliance

Scholarships

Every year, the UWSA offers $10,500 in scholarships and bursaries. This year, we have increased that amount and increased the number of individual scholarships available to recognize the additional need arising from the COVID-19 pandemic. UWSA scholarships are given out based on academic performance, extracurricular activities or community involvement. All undergraduate students are encouraged to apply.

 

In order to be eligible to apply for a scholarship, you must be a UWSA member in the Winter 2022 semester or had been one in the Fall 2021 semester. A UWSA member is a full-time undergraduate student. Full-time is defined as taking 4 or 5 courses. This includes JD and MD programs.

 

Applications for scholarships for the 2021-2022 year will open up in March 2022.
