Scholarships and Awards

Marianopolis gives about 150 scholarships and awards to its students each year.


Director General’s Merit Scholarships

Each year, Marianopolis offers 10 scholarships to first-year students who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents who have completed Secondary IV and V in a youth sector high school in Quebec.

  • Marianopolis gives five Director General’s Merit Scholarships ($2,500): students are selected based on final high school grades and are invited to apply; all applicants are notified in the summer.
  •  Marianopolis gives five Director General’s Student Life Scholarships ($2,500), to recognize high school students who, in addition to meeting the College’s academic requirements, possess significant potential to contribute to the quality of student life at Marianopolis. Students apply through their high school; all applicants are notified in the spring before admitted students confirm whether they will attend Marianopolis.

Two of these scholarships are generously funded by the Scotiabank Group and the Malouf Family Fund.

Recipients of these scholarships who demonstrate a financial need may also receive an additional scholarship, so as to cover the full cost of tuition.
