OUA Raise Athletic Scholarships

Wednesday, January, 20, 2016

Athletic scholarships offered by the Ontario Universities, also known as Athletic Financial Awards (AFAs), are available for entering student-athletes with an average of at least 80%.

The maximum amount a university is allowed to give a student-athlete has been increased from $4000 to $4500 annually, but the actual amount is up to the discretion of the individual university.

Non-entering student-athletes can receive AFAs up to $4,500 annually provided they attained 70% on all registered course work. Full information from the OUA on athletic scholarships can be found by clicking the linked image below.


In addition to athletic scholarships there are many academic scholarships that student-athletes should be aware of. See OFSAA's list of Scholarships and Awards.
