Student Life Award

The York University Student Life Award was designed to provide $500 in supplemental support to students who qualify for the YU Automatic Entrance Scholarship (domestic and international) or the York Design Automatic Entrance Scholarship to assist with the additional costs (aside from tuition) of student life such as books and eating on campus.

The scholarship funds will be paid directly to the recipients YU-Card at the start of their study period. In order to be considered for this award, students must accept their offer of admission by the date specified in their offer letter.

While you are able to see the award on your student account, this is for taxation and transcript notation purposes only. The funds will not be applied towards charges on your student account such as tuition, residence and meal plan.

Please note this is a one-time only award and the funds are nonrefundable. York University reserves the right to recover any unused funds should you withdraw from your studies. For more information please visit the Student Financial Services page.
