At the University of Ottawa, enhancing the student’s experience and supporting our students towards achieving their research aspirations are important priorities.

In addition to the University of Ottawa’s Admission Scholarship, the faculties and departments recognize the excellence of their students by awarding Special Merit Scholarships.

No application is required you are automatically considered at the time of admission for a Special Merit Scholarship. If you are selected, you will receive a scholarship offer with your admission.

Value and Duration

The amount and the duration are variable. Consult your faculty's Graduate Studies Office for more information about the Special Merit Scholarship and the selection criteria.
