– Continuous attendance – students must not have withdrawn from the university during the 3 term evaluation period.
– Enrollment status minimum – students must have earned at least 9 credits in each of the 3 terms of the evaluation period and be taking at least 9 credits at the time of the Excellence scholarship disbursement.
Award amounts are earned according to a student’s academic level and credit load, see the disbursement chart below:

Maximum Amount /academic year
Disbursements are made by semester up to the applicable program level maximum.
Initial Eligibility Evaluation (new or re-entering students) :
– Students will be evaluated after their 2nd term so the university can include the scholarship on eligible students’ 2nd academic year Financial Plans.
– Eligible students receive an award for the next 2 terms. This evaluation and awarding process continues until students graduate or withdraw from the university.
– A student who appeared eligible after the 2nd term based on CGPA, but whose CGPA falls below the expected GPA after their 3rd term won’t qualify at that time, but will have the opportunity to qualify again at the next evaluation point.
Initial Eligibility Evaluation (continuing students from Bachelor to Master) :
– Continuing students are those who attend term the Master’s program right after graduating from the bachelor. As long as they maintain continuous enrollment, they’ll establish initial eligibility once they’ve attended 2 consecutive terms.
Continuing Eligibility Evaluation :
– At each evaluation point, students must have the CGPA required by degree level, have remained continuously enrolled, and have earned at least 9 credits per term at the undergraduate level and 6 credits per term at the graduate level in order to receive additional awards.
