POST SECONDARY FINANCIAL AID

Grants, bursaries and scholarships are wonderful resources to help you finance your post-secondary education because they provide money that does not need to be paid back.

Scholarships are usually awarded based on merit rather than financial need.

Grants and bursaries are usually awarded based on:

  • financial need
  • academic achievement
  • athletic skill
  • special abilities that may also be considered

Every post-secondary institution has a financial aid office providing access to their bursary and scholarship programs as well as government and private organization programs.

LOANS

Loans are given to students proving financial need with repayment beginning after leaving post-secondary education.  The criteria vary from year to year so it is important to revisit the website each year.
