York University’s Faculty of Science announced its prestigious York Science Scholars Award (YSSA) program. In keeping with its vision of preparing global thinkers to advance knowledge and human progress, the Science Scholars program nurtures the intellectual and career development of high-achieving, passionate science students entering the Faculty.

Eligibility:

All students, Canadian and International, who have applied for entrance to the York University Faculty of Science are eligible to apply for this program. Newly enrolled first-year Faculty of Science students are eligible to receive this award. 

Applications are assessed holistically with a number of factors considered. The quality of applicants is high and competitive applicants tend to have: 

  • High academic achievement (minimum 80% admission average or equivalent).
  • Passion for science.
  • Community service experiences and a desire to make a difference for their communities.
  • Demonstrated leadership skills, 
  • Demonstrated involvement in activities beyond academics. 
  • For international students requiring the English language test for admission, competitive scores are: YELT: band 1\ TOEFL: iBT 100 \ IELTS: 7.5

YSSA Program Details:

York Science Scholars Awards are assessed separately and independently from any other York University Entrance Awards. As a result, recipients are eligible for the YSSA regardless of any other awards that they may receive. York Science Scholars will receive a $10,000 entrance scholarship which will be awarded in two parts. 

The first as an entrance scholarship and the second part once the experiential component is successfully completed. The first $5,000 will be awarded upon full-time enrollment to York University’s Faculty of Science. The second part is linked to the 12-week experiential component of the YSSA program (research placement or mentorship experience), overseen by a Faculty of Science professor during the summer following the recipient’s first year of study. Recipients must achieve a B+ average during the first year of study in order to be eligible for the experiential component. The receipt of the second $5,000 part of the scholarship is contingent upon the successful completion of the experiential component and upon enrollment in the following term of study.

Funding:

The 2020 York Science Scholars program provides up to 25 first-year entering students with awards worth $10,000 each.  This Faculty of Science award is considered separately and in addition to any other York University or Faculty of Science admissions awards and scholarships.

The York Science Scholars Award of $10,000 is provided in two parts:

  • $5,000 as an entrance scholarship.
  • $5,000 as a guaranteed summer research position following the first year of study.
