Grade 12 Guidance Information

Major Admission Awards

Students who demonstrate superior academic ability, creative and original thinking, involvement in school or community activities, and proven leadership qualities can apply for a major admission award. Financial need is also a consideration for some of our major admission awards. You may apply for one or all of these awards listed below by submitting a single Major Admission Award Application. The deadline to submit your application to the Student Awards Office is December 1, 2016.

All interested students need to complete application and hand it into Student Services by Tuesday Nov. 29th by 12pm.

If financial need is a criterion of a Major Admission Award you are interested in applying for, you must submit an Admission Bursary Application in addition to the Major Admission Award Application. The Admission Bursary Application will be available on your SOLUS Student Center.
Apply for admission to Queen’s through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC) prior to the Major Admission Award Application deadline. If you are unable to apply for admission online through OUAC prior to December 1 (i.e. you have not received your PIN number from you high school), you can still apply for a major admission award, and the application must still be submitted by December 1).
