Humanities Awards

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 the Student Financial Aid & Scholarships to adjudicate many of our faculty-wide awards.

There are numerous other awards and scholarships for undergraduate students administered solely by the Office of Student Financial Aid & Scholarships on behalf of McMaster University. Please visit their website for further details and a full listing of awards and scholarships.
