5 Financial Assistance

5.1 Scholarships

Mount Allison is interested in attracting the most well-rounded and involved student citizens from across Canada and abroad every year and is fortunate in being endowed with funds to financially reward and assist them in their studies. Every student has the opportunity to earn a scholarship, regardless of the degree program or the year of study. Mount Allison attempts to make scholarship funds available on an equitable basis across the entire student population.

5.1.1 Eligibility

The University awards scholarships to entering students for academic achievement and extracurricular involvement. Students need not apply for these scholarships, as consideration for scholarship eligibility is automatic and part of the Admissions process. All entering students who indicate the intention to pursue a course of study leading to a career as a medical doctor will automatically be considered for the Goodridge Scholarship. The deadline for application is March 1.

5.1.2 Entrance Scholarships

Scholarships awarded to entering students are tenable as long as the student is carrying a full course load of 30.0 credits over the Fall and Winter terms, and all other conditions of the award are fulfilled. Entrance scholarships range from $1000 to $5,000.

5.1.3 The Bell Scholarship

Established in 2002 as the premier entrance scholarship at Mount Allison, the Bell Scholarship celebrates students who have demonstrated strong academic ability, leadership potential, volunteer work, extracurricular activities, work experience, and good citizenship. To be considered for this prestigious scholarship, applicants must ensure that the required documentation is submitted to the university along with the application for admission by the application deadline of March 1st. Six awards are offered with a value of $56,000 and five awards are offered with a value of $44,000. Visit the Bell Scholarship web site for detailed information on how to apply.

5.1.4 Scholarships for Returning Students

All students who attend Mount Allison will be considered for scholarships after their first year of study. The University General Scholarships will be awarded annually to students, not holding an entrance scholarship, enrolled in a full course load of 30 credits over the Fall and Winter terms and who achieve a GPA of 3.7.

5.2 Bursaries

The Mount Allison bursary program provides assistance to full-time and part-time students who demonstrate financial need and who have exhausted all other avenues of support. Prior to applying for a Mount Allison bursary, applicants should apply to their province or country of residence for financial aid. Bursaries are awarded on the basis of financial need to students who have made satisfactory academic progress. Students needing assistance are encouraged to obtain an application form from the Registrar's Office web page under Financial Aid or contact the Financial Aid and Awards Counsellor.

5.2.1 Entrance Bursary Program

Mount Allison's Entrance Bursary Program has been established to offer assistance to students who have financial need in order to provide access to post-secondary education and to help them successfully complete their studies within a reasonable time period. Bursaries are determined based on financial need and are intended to supplement, but not replace, the student's own resources and the resources of the applicant's immediate family. Financial need is established when a student can demonstrate that his/her expenses exceed his/her resources. Students must first be accepted for admission at Mount Allison before the Entrance Bursary application is processed. Completed Entrance Bursary applications must be received by the deadline date each year, as noted on the application, in order to be considered. Students starting in January are not eligible for this award. To maintain their eligibility, students must also apply to their province for a student loan. Likewise, to maintain eligibility, international students from the United States must apply and be approved for a subsidized Direct Loan from the US Department of Education.

5.2.2 President's Advisory Committee International Student Entrance Bursary Program

The International Student Bursary Fund is administered by the President's Advisory Committee on International Students - Financial (PACIS-F) and offers a limited number of renewable International Student Entrance Bursaries to qualified applicants. In addition to financial need, applicants will be considered on a variety of factors such as academic standing and extracurricular involvement. In order to be considered for one of these awards, applicants must provide an outline of extracurricular activities and letters of reference that will support your application.

5.2.3 Senior Citizen Bursary Program

The Senior Citizen Bursary offers assistance to students 65 years of age or older who have financial need in order to provide access to post-secondary education and to help them successfully complete their studies within a reasonable time period. Bursaries "are determined based on financial need and are intended to supplement, but not replace, the student's own resources and the resources of the applicant's immediate family." Financial need is established when a student can demonstrate that his/her expenses exceed his/her resources. Students must first be accepted for admission and/or be enrolled at Mount Allison before the Senior Citizen Bursary application is processed. Completed Senior Citizen Bursary applications must be received by the deadline date each year, as noted on the application, in order to be considered.

5.3 Pre-Theological Bursaries

Various forms of financial assistance are available to students at Mount Allison who intend to study theology and enter some form of Christian Ministry.

5.3.1 The Mount Allison Theological Fund

The Mount Allison Theological Fund is administered by the Pre-Theological student advisor and is used in a variety of ways for the benefit of pre-theological students. Monies from the fund are available to students in the form of loans and bursaries. Various denominations provide assistance to students in Arts who intend to study for some form of Christian ministry. Information can be obtained from the Pre-Theological student advisor. In addition, some theological schools offer scholarships and bursaries to students in Arts who undertake to study theology at the theological school concerned. Pine Hill Divinity Hall (the United Church component of the Atlantic School of Theology) offers grants to students preparing for the ministry in the United Church. Students must commit themselves to taking full courses in Theology at the Atlantic School of Theology and plan to work for at least two years thereafter for the United Church of Canada. Students who do not fulfill these conditions are expected to arrange for repayment of monies received.

5.3.2 Application Procedure

Advanced applications are not necessary for Pre-Theological bursaries, but students who wish to apply should contact the Pre-Theological student advisor at the beginning of the academic year.
