Tadeusz Specht Memorial Entrance Scholarships

Tadeusz Specht Memorial Entrance Scholarship in Science and Health Sciences - awarded Fall 2022 onward

Payment One:

To receive the first payment, your final grades must meet the academic requirements to maintain admission to your program of study for the Fall term, and be enrolled in and complete a minimum of 12 SFU standard graded units.

Entrance Scholarship recipients whose admission evaluation on final grades does not demonstrate a minimum score of 90% or 31IB points will be contacted by the Financial Aid and Awards office for additional requirements. 

Predicted bonus points are not considered in the calculation.

If you enroll in 3 to 11 SFU standard graded units in your first term, your scholarship will automatically be deferred to the next term. To be eligible for your first payment in the following term, you must meet the renewal cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 2.00 on your first term marks and enroll in at least 12 SFU standard graded units in the following term. You will become ineligible for entrance scholarship funding if you do not attain a minimum 2.00 CGPA in your first term.

Payment Two:

To receive the second payment, you must achieve a minimum CGPA of 2.00 at the end of your first term, be enrolled in and complete a minimum of 12 SFU standard graded units, and demonstrate engagement in the community of scholars.

Payment Three, onwards:

To receive the third payment and all subsequent payments, you must have a minimum CGPA of 3.00, be enrolled in and complete a minimum of 12 SFU standard graded units per term, and demonstrate engagement in the community of scholars.


During the terms when you meet the CGPA requirements and:

  • do not register in classes, your scholarship will be automatically deferred to a future term when you meet eligibility criteria again.
  • register in less than 12 SFU standard graded units, your scholarship will be deferred to a future term when you meet eligibility criteria again. Your academic performance for those SFU units will be reviewed when assessing your eligibility for your future entrance scholarship payments, whether you received a payment or not.

If your CGPA is less than 2.00, your scholarship will be permanently cancelled.

If your CGPA is 2.00-2.99, you will not be eligible for scholarship payments. Once your CGPA reaches 3.00 or higher while within the term tenure of your scholarship, your scholarship payments will resume.
