The Student Awards & Financial Aid Office at the University of Windsor is committed to the protection of privacy and confidentiality of all its constituency.
University of Windsor Scholarship and Awards Program
The purpose of data collection when a student applies for an award or scholarship through our on-line application process, is to provide the Student Awards & Financial Aid Office the facility to adjudicate applications and eligibility accordingly based on the terms of reference for the award. As well, a student is agreeing to allow their name to be shared with the donor of the award if requested by the donor.
As well, some awards are administered automatically by an assignment based on a minimum grade requirement i.e. Automatic Entrance Award Program, or by nomination. In these cases, the names of students are withheld and not released to any third party outside of the University, without the consent of the student.
Regardless of the means by which an award is assigned to a student however, by acceptance of the award, information may be shared internally should the information be required for a University of Windsor employee/department to fulfill the duties of their position. Some examples where student information may be shared are as follows:
