If you’re applying to CapU as a new student, you can also apply for the entrance awards.

Scholarships, bursaries, and awards are financial assistance that you don't have to pay back.

Our entrance awards are given to new students to recognize and support achievement in academics, sports, and the arts. Some awards also look at financial need, and many awards are given for your commitment to community involvement and leadership.

2024-25 Entrance Awards dates

  • The online application opens on October 15, 2023.
  • The deadline to apply online and submit supporting documents is March 1, 2024.
