Making education more accessible

Queen’s University and the Faculty of Arts and Science have introduced a new Dean’s Admission Scholarship for incoming Bachelor of Arts students. The $1,500 to $2,000 first-year scholarship is available to students with an 88.5 to 89.9 high school average.

Students will be automatically considered for this award upon application.

“Canada needs more well-rounded, multi-talented arts graduates,” says Susan Mumm, Dean, Faculty of Arts and Science. “To meet this need, Queen’s is establishing additional admission scholarships to attract exceptional students. As well as a financial boost, these awards will provide a symbolic ‘vote of confidence’ in a student’s ability to succeed at Queen’s.”

To increase both applications and acceptances from high-caliber, well-rounded students to the Bachelor of Arts (Honours) program, the dean has made admission scholarships the highest faculty priority.
