Academic Readiness Bursary

The Academic Readiness Bursary provides assistance for students who are or will be registered in the Winter 2021 term and who may incur costs related to studying remotely in the Winter term as a result of COVID-19. 

We are accepting applications up until January 31, 2021 for expenses incurred from November 1 until January 31, 2021. Please note that funding is limited, so in order to assist as many students as possible, this bursary will not exceed $500 per student (additional support may be considered if you have dependents).
