Laurier Donor Supported Bursary Program

Bursary assistance is granted based on financial need, and we have a number of bursaries which have beenestablished by the generosity of our donors.

These bursaries are separate from the Laurier Tuition Bursary program and the Entrance Bursary program. It is possible to receive funding from both sources.

Not all eligible candidates will receive funding through the donor supported bursary program. These funds are granted to the candidates who meet all of the stated criteria for each opportunity, and demonstrate thegreatest financial need, based on the completion of the financial statement which is included in the general online student profile.

There are bursary opportunities which are available to both full and part time students, as well as to graduate and undergraduate students. For your reference, the description(s) can be found onlineon our search engine, and this will provide specific descriptions for each opportunity (it is not possible to meet the eligibility criteria for all available donor supported bursary opportunities).

For the 2016/2017 academic year, the general student profile will be available on LORIS in early August, and the submission deadline will be late September 2016.

In order to be considered for assistance through the donor bursary program, it is mandatory to complete the "General Student profile"for all studentsby the stated deadlines (late submissions will not be accepted).
