Mount Allison University offers one of the strongest and most competitive scholarship and bursary programs in Canada.

With more than $2 million in scholarships, bursaries, and financial aid awarded each year, it is an ideal way to help offset the cost of your post-secondary studies. In 2016, approximately 70 per cent of our entering class received an entrance award and many benefitted from in-term, need-based financial aid bursaries.

What are scholarships, bursaries, and awards?

  • Scholarships merit based, recognizing academic and extracurricular achievements (may have financial need component)
  • Bursaries offers assistance to incoming full-time students who demonstrate financial need
  • Awards – offers assistance to incoming full-time students who demonstrate exceptional academic achievement, community involvement, and/or financial need

How do I apply for financial aid?

Receiving financial aid from Mount Allison is comprised of these simple steps:

  • Apply for scholarships at the same time you apply for admission, within your online application account
  • Apply for bursaries once you've been offered admission to Mount Allison through your Connect@MTA account – a secure student network, provided at time of admission
  • You will automatically be considered for awards, should you meet the criteria

Please note that most bursaries, scholarships, and awards can be combined to cover or partially cover the cost of your Mount Allison degree. For more information, contact the financial aid and awards counsellor:  


*For guaranteed entrance scholarship and entrance bursary consideration, applications must be submitted 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.
