Scholarships - Opening Doors to Greater Opportunities

Making the decision to pursue a university program is a big commitment - and one that can sometimes present a financial challenge for you as a prospective student.

Each year, hundreds of University of Lethbridge students meet this challenge with the assistance of scholarships and awards sponsored by the University and outside organizations. The funds allow students to focus on their studies and to take advantage of opportunities that otherwise may not have been available.

Could you benefit from financial assistance in your program? Be sure to check out our Scholarships and Awards page to see what you may be eligible for and how to apply.
