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 co-ordinating 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.
