How to become a Junior Fellow


Students coming directly from high school with a minimum Grade 12 (interim) admission average of 85%. Junior Fellows are selected for extraordinary scholarly potential, exceptional ability, originality, and resourcefulness.

The 85% requirement is calculated using your English 12 grades and three approved Grade 12 courses. We understand COVID-19 has impacted the course schedules of many students. If you do not have the final or interim marks for English 12 and three approved Grade 12 courses when you apply for the scholarship, we will substitute your Grade 11 marks. Any complicated cases will be addressed on a case-by-case basis. Kindly contact [email protected] if you have any questions or would like clarification on the requirements.
