Spring Scholarships

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if the spring scholarships have all been given out?  For example, the "highest mark in X class" awards?

Thanks!

I can't speak to whether all of them have but I can confirm that at least a few have been issued.

I wouldn't expect to hear back before September about application-based awards. I think I received my award letter in early Nov last year...

No problem! :)

They split the money in half between the winter and fall semesters. Since I had already paid my fall tuition, that money was refunded to me sometime in November. You can add your bank account info on Beartracks to get a direct deposit; otherwise, it will be sent out by cheque. 

For the winter semester, the refund went through sometime in February. So, basically, you should be prepared to pay the tuition yourself and get refunded for the award later (after the term refund deadline passes).

Crim does, but I think LRW has just the one. 

Assuming @Alterion isn't mistaken, which seems like an awfully safe assumption, there are at least 2 for LRW.

Perhaps they have discretion where if multiple students at the top of the class have work that is essentially indistinguishable in quality that they can hand out multiple awards.

It would make sense especially in the context of LRW where work is graded by different people based on learning groups which creates a bit of a luck element when comparing students who are apart by 1% or less in their grade for the course

They could also just give a medal to the top three or one for morning and one for afternoon. *shrugs*

Yes there should be 2 LRW awards. There is a list somewhere on the website showing a total of $2500 and I received $1250.

    • I did see that. When there's a jarring discrepancy between the thread title and the very first sentence, I'd hardly say that "it's pretty clear" what they're asking.
    • I am also on team "enjoy yourself as much as possible," especially given the pandemic. Work on your hobbies. Paint a painting. Build a model airplane. Finish writing that compendium of 400 limericks about maple syrup you've been working on all year.  That aside, if it's safe for you to do so, consider participating in some kind of volunteering or mutual aid. That might be both a good way to help people who need it right now and also a satisfying way to spend the time. If you want to think about it in terms of law school preparation, it might also give you something to talk about once you start interviewing for clinics and jobs (i.e., shows a drive to help others/ makes you look like you're keen on remaining productive at all times/might help you improve on a skill).  Another thing might be to join any social media groups for your school/cohort and start connecting with your classmates. Might be nice to start to get to know people. You might also meet upper year students that way, who may offer advice and resources for you later in the semester. I just finished 3L at U of T and I'm studying for the bar exams, which means that I'm antsing for a welcome distraction - like the opportunity to sound knowledgeable by sharing school advice. I'm probably not the only one who feels this way. If it turns out I am, feel free to PM me here (or feel free anyways, I'm very open). I wouldn't recommend reading law. There's no shortage of opportunity to do so once the semester begins.
    • Well that’s a silly argument. If the students who will pay increased tuition no longer feel it’s worthwhile to get a degree, they can simply not attend university in the fall. That’s how markets work. If you think something isn’t worth the price, you don’t buy it   Also, I have to imagine some faculty and administrators will be feeling the pain of COVID. There’s no reason to hire sessional lecturers for Bio 100 if you can just collapse all the sections of the course into one large one, taught by one prof. 
    • If the economy into which graduates will compete just shrank 25%, maybe it is incumbent on faculty and administrators to feel some of that pain.
