UNBC’s Registrar’s Office will calculate the AGPA. Meeting the minimum grade point averages does not guarantee an award. Available to full-time students entering a Master's program at UNBC for the first time, and to full-time students entering a Doctoral Program for the first time and who have not previously held a Graduate Entrance Scholarship. Applications will be assessed based on a combination of academic excellence (based on an admission GPA of 4.00 or higher) and the excellence of the Research/Study Goals Statement, and the appropriateness of UNBC for meeting those goals, as outlined in the statement provided by the applicant. Specific conditions apply; please visit the UNBC Awards Database for further information, and for information about renewal criteria.
