Award Ceremony and Recipients

The School of Arts & Science hosts an annual awards ceremony every year, where the majority of the awards are presented. The Administration Office will notify recipients of their award/scholarship. Invitations to the Awards Ceremony will be sent out by email.

In 2023, the School of Arts & Science honoured over 80 students at the awards ceremony. When you receive an award, it means not only that you have excelled in your studies, but that you have followed through on the commitment you made to yourself, your family, or your community to do the best you could as you worked towards your future goals.
