McMaster University Award of Excellence are monetary awards given to incoming students based on academic merit and, in some cases, other forms of earned merit (community involvement, leadership, etc.). The value of your entrance award will be credited to your student account after the deadline to add and/or drop classes without penalty. Most entrance awards are automatically awarded, while others require the completion of an AwardSpring application.
