When looking for financial aid, you can also explore awards from other organizations outside of CapU.

Many government partners, associations and not-for-profit organizations offer scholarships, bursaries and awards for eligible CapU students.

We’ve pulled together an extensive list of external scholarships, bursaries and awards – with links to details for each – in the External Awards Handout (pdf).

If you qualify for any of these awards, you’ll need to apply to the sponsoring organization directly.

We update this list regularly, so check back here for new information. 

Please note that each organization's website will have all the details listed, as well as instructions and deadlines for applying.
