All Opportunities

Welcome to the Lakehead University myAwards page

Please note that we are currently in the process of updating our upcoming awards cycle that begins on August 15.

Below you will find a listing of funding opportunities that are available to registered Lakehead University students with brief information about each opportunity and the qualifications. To apply to any opportunity which require an application you must be a registered student. Sign in using your Lakehead University user name and password and you will then have the opportunity to complete the General Application. To sign in simply click the Sign In button located at the top right of this page.

New/Prospective Students – Please note that you must be enrolled at Lakehead University prior to applying for scholarships on this page.
You will receive your Lakehead University email address and login credentials once you have been admitted to Lakehead University.

If you have any questions, please reach out to out Student Central at studentcentral@lakeheadu.ca

The majority of the funding opportunities offered by Lakehead University are auto-matched through the General Application and you may not be required to complete any further applications. If you are eligible for additional opportunities that require supplemental information, these will display for you once you have completed and submitted the General Application, on the left hand side of your page. These are identified as Recommended Opportunities. You may still be allowed to apply to non-recommended opportunities but you may not qualify for these opportunities.

Many of our opportunities are funded through the generosity of donors within our communities. Be advised that all funding is subject to receipt from donor and we ask that you provide a thank you letter if asked to share your experiences with your donor.

For optimal compatibility, access the application system using any newer browser, e.g. Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Apple Safari.
