Mount Allison student walking on campusMount Allison’s bursary program was established to increase access to post-secondary education and to assist students with demonstrated financial need in completing their studies in a timely manner.

Bursaries are awarded based on demonstrated financial need and are intended to supplement, not replace:

  • a student’s own resources
  • the resources of the applicant’s immediate family
  • the calculated parental contribution as indicated by provincial and/or federal student loans

Financial need is established when a student has demonstrated that their expenses exceed their resources. Priority will be given to students who demonstrate an urgency to purchase food, books, or to pay rent.
