UWaterloo Bursaries

What is a Bursary?

Bursaries are based primarily on financial need but may include other selection criteria such as extracurricular involvement or leadership. Bursaries are meant to supplement, not replace, students' primary sources of funding such as OSAP (Ontario Student Assistance Program) or other provincial financial assistance, employment income, and parental/spousal contributions. 

For further information about the bursaries that are administered by University of Waterloo please look over the following links.
