Laurier Donor Supported Bursary Program
Bursary assistance is granted based on financial need, and we have a number of bursaries which have been established by the generosity of our donors.
These bursaries are separate from the Laurier General Tuition Bursary program. 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 the highest financial need, based on the completion of the financial statement which is included in the 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 online on 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).
2013/2014 PROGRAM INFORMATION
In order to be considered for assistance through the donor bursary program, the completion of the online student profile is required. The profile is available online on LORIS as of September 3, 2013, and the deadline for submission is Monday October 16, 2013, 11:59 pm.
ONLINE STUDENT PROFILE DEADLINE: October 16, 2013, 11:59 pm (available as of September 3, click here to log in to LORIS).
Recipients will be notified by e-mail (to the WLU e-mail account), and these notifications will be sent no later than the end of January 2014. If selected, the funds will be applied to student accounts with the Business Office for the fall or winter academic term(s), as applicable. If selected as a recipient, the e-mail notification will contain specific details on the processing of the funds.
It is mandatory that the financial statement is completed. The online student profile will contain the link to this form.
Please note that this program is separate from our Entrance Bursary, Laurier General Tuition Bursary, First Generation Bursary, and Post Secondary Education and Training Bursary. It is possible to receive bursary funding from more than one of these sources.
Applications were submitted on LORIS, and the online form included a description of each opportunity, a check box to indicate which opportunity (s) you would like to be considered for, as well as a financial statement. There were two mandatory sections to the application; Section 1 where you indicate which opportunities you would like to apply for, as well as Section 2 containing the financial information. If the online form times out due to inactivity, you can log back in to complete the remaining section(s).
A complete list of opportunities which are available through this program will be posted online in the summer 2013.
Please note that this program is separate from our Entrance Bursary, Laurier General Tuition Bursary, First Generation Bursary, and Post Secondary Education and Training Bursary. It is possible to receive bursary funding from more than one of these sources. Separate applications are required for each of these programs.
