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.

OSAP assessments, awards and scholarships, and International Tuition Grants for the spring term will be posted as Anticipated Aid on Quest within a few days of being available. Amounts will be updated, as required, throughout the Promissory Note period.
