Trent University Offers Free Tuition for Students

Trent University has announced an exciting new incentive program, offering free tuition for
first-year students with an entering average of 90% or higher, to recruit the best and brightest
young students.
Eligible students will receive a $5,000 scholarship, equivalent to the cost of tuition, if they
accept their offer of admission to Trent for the fall.

"Given the economic challenges facing Canadian families, we feel that this will be a good
incentive to assist top high school scholars pay for their costs of the education,” said
Christopher Michael, Trent University registrar and director of Institutional Research.

To qualify, students must be either a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, who is
attending a post-secondary institution for the first time, directly from a Canadian high school,
and entering with an average of 90% and above for the 2009-10 academic year. Students
must also be registering at Trent with a full course load of at least five credits.

The scholarship is renewable. If students maintain an average of at least 80% in five full
credits, or equivalent, each year they are at Trent, they could be eligible to receive up to
$14,000 in scholarships over four years.
