What is a bursary?

A bursary is a non-repayable award assessed on demonstrated financial need through an online application which evaluates education and allowable living expenses with resources. Other criteria may be considered such as extra-curricular activities, grade point average, and citizenship. Fanshawe College and the Fanshawe College Foundation work closely with community partners to secure financial support for students in need.
