Scholarships and Awards
Western offers many generous scholarships and bursaries. Please contact the Office of the Registrar for more information. In addition to such awards, and some that are administered for the Department by the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, the Department offers several awards on the basis of an application process where written or studio submissions are adjudicated. The normal deadline for such applications is the end of January. Please contact the Undergraduate Chair for further details.
