FINANCIAL AID BURSARIES
FINANCIAL AID BURSARIES
*First term: September 30 of every year
*Second Term: January 31 of every year
Note: To access funds in this category, applicants are only required to fill out a general financial aid bursary application, once per term. Students can apply for this financial aid for both the Fall and Winter terms (i.e. twice in one academic year).
To qualify, you must:
- Be taking at least 6 credits at the University of Sudbury in the current academic year.
- Fill out and submit an application form, before the deadline!
CONTINUING SCHOLARSHIPS FOR INDIGENOUS STUDENTS ($5,000 to $7,000 PER YR)
There are a couple different continuing scholarship opportunities for Indigenous students. They are SUBSTANTIAL, as they offer a chance to receive $5,000 to $7,000 per year, until undergraduate degree completion! The bit of time and effort to submit a one-time application can reap big benefits.
Filling out our general Financial Aid Bursary form (seen higher up on this page) can give you access to one of these opportunities. It is IMPORTANT, however, to read the section below for the Rotary scholarship, as other steps need to be taken for this big opportunity.
Generally, to be eligible for these continuing scholarships, you must be an Indigenous student pursuing full-time studies (minimum of 24 credits), you must be taking at least 6 credits offered by the University of Sudbury, and you must meet certain other criteria, depending on the individual scholarships (can vary year per year), so be sure to complete forms and application steps with care (seen in the sections immediately below).
Recipients who continue to meet the criteria and remain in good academic standing will continue to receive their yearly substantial amounts until they complete their undergraduate degrees.
