FINANCIAL AID BURSARIES
FINANCIAL AID BURSARIES
*First term: September 30 of every year
*Second Term: January 31 of every year
Note: To access funds in this category, applicants are only required to apply once per term. Students can apply for financial aid for both the Fall and Winter terms (i.e. twice in one academic year).
To qualify, you must:
- Have been in a programme (B.A., major, concentration, specialisation) offered by the University of Sudbury in 2020-2021, which is no longer offered at Laurentian University AND is continuing undergraduate studies either at Laurentian or at another university OR
- Was in residence at the University of Sudbury for the 2020-2021 academic year and is continuing undergraduate studies either at Laurentian University or another university
- Submit an application (cover letter, proof of current post-secondary enrolment), before the deadline! If applying for one or more specific bursaries or scholarships, mention them in your cover letter.
CONTINUING SCHOLARSHIPS FOR INDIGENOUS STUDENTS ($5,000 to $7,000 PER YR)
There are continuing scholarship opportunities for Indigenous students. They are SUBSTANTIAL, as they offer a chance to receive $5,000 to $7,000 per year, until undergraduate degree completion! The bit of time and effort to submit a one-time application can reap big benefits.
Filling out our general Financial Aid Bursary form (seen higher up on this page) can give you access to one of these opportunities.
Generally, to be eligible for these continuing scholarships, you must be an Indigenous student pursuing full-time studies (minimum of 24 credits), you must be taking at least 6 credits offered by the University of Sudbury, and you must meet certain other criteria, depending on the individual scholarships (can vary year per year), so be sure to complete forms and application steps with care (seen in the sections immediately below).
Recipients who continue to meet the criteria and remain in good academic standing will continue to receive their yearly substantial amounts until they complete their undergraduate degrees.
