    Scholarships, Bursaries & Awards

    • Scholarships, bursaries, and awards are types of financial assistance that you don’t have to pay back.

      Scholarships are typically based on academic achievement, while bursaries take financial need into consideration. Awards can be based on academic merit, athletic achievements, extra-curricular involvement, or special achievements, and may or may not take financial need into consideration.
