Financial Need Emergency Bursaries (343)

The Financial Need Bursary Program aims to support learners who are experiencing short term financial struggles, leading to early withdrawals, and have exhausted all financial resources available. These emergency situations should be unforeseen and not pre-existing.  Awards from this fund may be disbursed in the form of cheque, food voucher, transit pass or academic support, depending on the financial and/or academic need of the applicant.  Awards are granted at the discretion of the Awards Team, and learners may be provided with community resource information instead if applicable.
