You can find it offered at the U of L through a wide range of scholarships and awards. Many of these awards are given out based on your grades (from the last five years), but other criteria like leadership, community involvement, or artistic ability may also be considered.
While not all awards require you to apply, researching which awards you may qualify for and filling out an application is strongly recommended. A few minutes of your time can really pay off in a big way. Keep in mind that any U of L awards you receive will be dependent on your decision to attend the University of Lethbridge.

You must have a University of Lethbridge ID number and an account on our student Information system called the Bridge before you can access the online scholarship application forms. This means you should apply for admission at least two weeks before the scholarship deadline in order to have your application processed and your Bridge account created. If you have questions regarding your ID number or the Bridge, please contact us.
External awards are also a great option for financing your education. While these awards are not sponsored by the U of L, they can certainly help with costs. To get the most value, you should apply for both external awards and U of L awards.
