Scholarships & Bursaries
Scholarships and bursaries are financial assistance programs that assist with paying your post-secondary education and training. These programs are provided by government, post-secondary institutions and industry and qualified applicants are not required to pay them back.
Scholarships are often derived from high school or post-secondary school merit. For example, if you have graduated with top honours, the opportunity for scholarships is greater. Some scholarships are also based on athletic skill, extra-curricular involvement or areas of interest.
Where a scholarship is a monetary award given to a student of academic excellence in a specific area of study; a bursary is a monetary grant given to a student who has a clearly demonstrated financial need and/or satisfactory academic achievement.
