Scholarships for high school students

If you’re in high school and want to be considered for scholarship support, complete the general scholarship application by Mar 1. It covers the majority of UNB entrance scholarships (400+) available to Canadian and international high school applicants who are starting an undergraduate program at UNB. One application covers both campuses.

You’ll be assessed for scholarship opportunities once you’ve been admitted into an undergraduate degree program. UNB’s scholarship support ranges from $500 to $100,000!

Late applications are accepted but opportunities will be limited.
