Pathways Scholarships

Algoma University Pathways Scholarships are available to students applying for a degree-completion program, after earning a two or three-year diploma from a Canadian community college or those transferring from another Canadian University.

Only those Algoma U students who are enrolled in and maintain 24 credits or more over two consecutive terms (fall/winter) of study are eligible. Students admitted to a winter term during an academic year will be eligible for one-half the award (minimum 12 credits) during their first year. Awards are decided using the overall average obtained by the candidate as calculated at the time of admission. Effective January 2018, pathways scholarships will be awarded to college diploma graduates who have completed their diploma within 12 months of their start term at Algoma University.

Pathways are for students who have not previously been registered at Algoma University.
