Undergraduate Awards

The Student Awards & Financial Aid Office (SAFA) manages hundreds of undergraduate awards for students newly admitted to first-year studies and for students currently enrolled in an undergraduate program at the University of Waterloo.

Our office is responsible for advertising award opportunities, collecting applications, and coordinating with Faculties and/or award committees to complete the selection process. We work closely with departments across campus to ensure they have the information they need to select recipients for a variety of achievement awards. We are responsible for processing all undergraduate award payments and for communicating with recipients.
