    I am Jide and international student from Nigeria, since before I can apply for the scholarship I need to get admission into the university, kindly share the link for registering.

      Hello Jide,

      I would suggest contacting our Admissions department for instructions on applying to undergraduate studies at Carleton University. Their website is admission.carleton.ca. You can also call their toll-free number, 1-888-354-4414.

    I was just wondering. When it says ” For all Prestige Scholarships, you will need an admission average of 90 percent or better,” does that mean that when I get my acceptance letter my average should be above 90, or is the average with all grade 11 and 12 courses up to now is 90 and above?

    1. Sohaila says:

      or does it depend on the highest 6 4U course marks?

    2. Shaun says:

      Hello Sohaila,

      When the committee meets to assess applications, they will look at your most recent admission average. This will likely include grades from your first-semester finals. Basically, we use the most up-to-date information we have. As for what courses are used, your admission average is calculated by our Admissions department.

      Best regards,

How would I be able to submit it? Would the application be accepted by mail or email? If so where would I be able to mail it?
