Funding and Scholarships

University of Waterloo sign

We offer a number of options to help you fund your studies and to reward entering and current students for their successes. All incoming first-year students are automatically considered for financial awards, and no separate applications are required (with the exception of the Suncor Emerging Leaders Award). Please note that the Engineering entrance scholarships are based upon both admission averages and the Admission Information Form.

In addition to co-op, students can take advantage of the many scholarships, bursaries, and awards available through the University of Waterloo and Waterloo Engineering. For undergraduates entering their first year in Engineering, we offer guaranteed entrance scholarships to students with minimum admission averages of 85%.

Visit the Student Awards and Financial Aid Office to find out about scholarships, bursaries, and loan programs available to our undergraduates.
