Bursaries

A bursary is similar to scholarships in that you are not required to repay it, but it's awarded primarily on financial need rather than academic achievement.

Find out what bursaries you may be eligible for on the Student Awards and Financial Aid Bursaries page.

Applied Health Sciences Endowment Fund (AHSEF)

The Applied Health Sciences Endowment Fund (AHSEF) was established as a student-based financial support system created to enhance the academic environment of all undergraduates in the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences.

Each undergraduate student registered in AHS contributes to the fund, as a donation to the University of Waterloo through AHSEF. The money is a voluntary contribution used to support student-initiated projects with an academic and student life focus
