Awards and Scholarships

At the Carleton Science Student Society, we recognize the diversity of experiences that undergraduate students encounter in their journey to complete their degree. Through this scholarship program, we hope to acknowledge and reward Carleton University science students on their experiences, character development and demonstration of various positive character traits through written prompts. Academics are not the only important aspect in a university degree. Everyone has unique experiences that shape their journey. We look forward to hearing your stories!

If you have any questions, please contact our VP Academic, Mackenzie Huckvale, at: academic@sciencesociety.ca.

 

Students may apply to as many scholarships as they’d like, however they may only win one.

This year's deadline to apply for awards has passed! Thank you to everyone who applied! Please check back at the start of 2023.
