General Scholarship, Award, and Bursary Information
King’s offers many scholarships, awards, and bursaries available to both new and returning King’s students. Some awards and scholarships are automatically awarded, while others require time to review eligibility and complete applications.
General Scholarship/Award/Bursary Information:
The eligibility criteria for each award can be found in the award description.
No student will receive King's scholarship or award monies (excluding bursaries monies) in excess of the individual student's tuition per academic year (effective 2015-16 academic year).
Continuing and renewable King's scholarships are for a maximum of four years of study at King's. Students are considered based on the September - April study period.
Recipient selection will be made by the Scholarship and Bursary Committee based on applications submitted, where applicable. The scholarship, award, or bursary shall be awarded to the appropriate candidate at the discretion of the Scholarship and Bursary Committee. Donors will not be involved in the selection process.
For Fall 2020: Decisions on in-course and in-program scholarships awarded in Fall 2020 may use the numerical grade underlying a grade of “Pass.”
For Continuing Scholarships awarded in Fall 2020, Pass/Fail grades will not be included in the calculation of the grade average used to determine your eligibility to retain a Continuing Scholarship.
In light of the impact of COVID-19 for some students for the 2020-2021 academic year, recipients of the King’s Entrance Scholarship (high school, arts and humanities, international, preliminary, and CAAT) and the King’s Continuing Scholarship are not required to be registered full-time for 2020-2021 academic year. If you choose to register part-time, the scholarship will be prorated depending on the number of courses in which you register. If you do not use your full scholarship to pay your tuition, the remaining funds will be kept in your tuition account for the next academic year to assist with your fees . Whether registered full-time or part-time, please note that sixty percent of your courses must be taken at King’s in order to keep this scholarship.
