Mount Allison's bursary program offers assistance to students who have financial need in order to help provide access to post-secondary education.

Bursaries are based on demonstrated financial need and are intended to supplement, but not replace, a student's own resources and the resources of the applicant's immediate family and/or calculated parental contribution as indicated by provincial and/or federal student loans.


Entrance bursaries

All incoming students are eligible to apply for Mount Allison's entrance bursaries once they have received an offer of admission to Mount Allison.

Entrance bursaries (non-renewable) range from $1,500-$3,000.

Eligibility and how to apply

  • To be eligible, you must have demonstrated financial need and be eligible for government student loans.
  • Once you've received your offer of admission to Mount Allison, you can apply for entrance bursaries through your Connect@MTA account – a secure student network that will be provided to you at the time of admission.

Bursary applications must be received by March 1. For applications received after March 1, entrance scholarships and bursaries will be assessed on a case-by-case basis and are not guaranteed consideration.

For more detailed information, read our Entrance Bursaries FAQ.

Receiving your entrance bursary 

Entrance bursaries will be applied to your account after a confirmation of your student loans is submitted to financialaid@mta.ca. All students can re-apply for a bursary upon their return to studies in second, third, and fourth year.
