Scholarships and Financial Aid

Future students should take a look at the Scholarships and Tuition information.

Current undergraduate students have several options available through York's Student and Financial Services.

Upper-year undergraduate students interested in research should also learn about funded research opportunities.

Our department also offers a variety of awards for undergraduate students. Some awards (shown with [$]) come with a monetary prize, funded through an endowment. The amount therefore varies from year to year, but in recent years, the money awarded has been about $800-$2000. There is no application procedure for the awards listed below. The recipients are chosen by the Department on merit. For other possible awards see award search.
