Scholarships and Bursaries

Did you know there are hundreds of scholarships and bursaries that could help pay for your education?


Many scholarships are based on academic achievement. However, others are awarded for athletic involvement, leadership, community service or areas of interest.

Understand the difference between a scholarship and a bursary

  • A scholarship is a monetary award given to a student for academic excellence in a specific area of study (such as biology or English) or for achievements in non-academic areas (such as athletics or community service).
  • A bursary is a monetary grant given to a student based on clearly demonstrated financial need and/or satisfactory academic achievement.
