There are many scholarships and bursaries available to students across Canada from external donors. Even if you are in your upper years of study, we encourage you to look for external funding options.


  • you will have to use filtering options to narrow down your search to find the funding that is right for you
  • a lot of applications require similar information to be submitted. We encourage you to make a scholarship template full of information that you can use as a reference for any funding opportunity that comes along
