Awards and Scholarships

Ryerson Student Awards Winners

The Student Awards and Scholarships office aims to help Ryerson students and staff with the Scholarship and Awards application process.

We play a central role in the establishment, set-up, promotion, and application process for all current student awards and liaise with program departments regarding their awards applications, assessment, selection processes and for planning and executing a variety of awards events. In 2016, we teamed up with RU Student Life to celebrate students with our inaugural Student Experience Award Celebration.

The categories below outline what is currently available for undergraduate studies:

The Dennis Mock Student Leadership Awards recognize graduating students who have made outstanding voluntary extracurricular contributions to their school or academic program department, their faculty, or to Ryerson University as a whole. The awards acknowledge and encourage student participation in university affairs. This is a prestigious, non-monetary award that will be celebrated at the Student Experience Awards on April 2, 2018. Members of the Ryerson community – students, faculty, staff or alumni – are welcome to submit nominations.

Markus Harwood-Jones, recipient of the University-Wide Dennis Mock Student Leadership Award

"Since first year, Markus has been involved with the Ryerson Students’ Union and Continuing Education Students’ Association at Ryerson.

Becoming involved with the Equity Service Centres, Markus has worked extensively with RyePride and became a founder of the Ryerson Trans Collective in 2014. Markus has engaged in outreach, interpersonal support, workshop facilitation, event planning and execution, web development, and community consultations. During this time, Markus also has volunteered with the RU Noted team and the Tri Mentoring program.

Possibly his most impactful contribution, Markus helped lead the All Gender Bathroom campaign, a project run with the Trans Collective which helped transform the school by creating more bathrooms which could be used by any gender.

Markus has not only made a significant contribution to students in the department of Sociology and the Ryerson community but is a remarkable student who achieves the highest standards of academic accomplishment. I can unequivocally say with enthusiasm that Markus is deserving of this leadership award."
