Humanities Awards and Scholarships

The Faculty of Humanities offers more undergraduate student awards than any other faculty. We recognize academic achievements, undergraduate research, community leadership, and other contributions through scholarships, awards, and prizes. Many of these have been made available through the generosity of donors who wish to assist students in achieving academic success.

The faculty works in conjunction with Student Financial Aid & Scholarships (SFAS) to adjudicate many of our faculty awards.

There are numerous other university scholarships for undergraduate students administered solely by SFAS on behalf of McMaster University. Please visit their website for further details and a full listing of awards and scholarships.

Click on any of the following pages to learn more about our awards:

Essay Prize Competitions

Award winners are celebrated annually at the annual Humanities Awards Assembly.

(For information on Entrance Awards for incoming students, please visit the Student Financial Aid and Scholarships webpage.)
