We know finding a way to finance your education is a big part of going to college. That’s why we offer more than 650 scholarships, awards and bursary opportunities to help you pay for school. That’s over $5 million in available funds that students don’t need to pay back! To get started, find the scholarship, award and bursary opportunity that’s right for you and apply.

A scholarship is an award based on academic achievement. Other criteria may be considered, like leadership skills or community involvement. You don't have to repay a scholarship.

A bursary is an award for a student in financial need. Bursaries are designed to help students who can show that they require additional resources to meet their education and living expenses. Some may be based partly on your marks as well. You don’t have to repay a bursary
