  • Although a 3.50 GPA is the minimum to be considered, it does not guarantee that you will be selected.
  • Students can apply for both the Jason Lang and Louise McKinney scholarships, and are encouraged to do so. However, they will only be nominated for one or the other, if eligibility criteria are met.
  • Selections are made by Scholarships and Student Finance.
