Waterloo bursaries

Bursaries are non-repayable awards issued to students who demonstrate financial need. They’re designed to supplement other forms of funding you may be eligible for. Before being considered for a bursary, you‘re expected to:

  • Seek financial support from all sources including family, employment, loans, and OSAP or other provincial student aid program
  • Review your OSAP application to ensure it’s accurate. Errors, omissions and appeals on an OSAP application can affect the amount of funding you receive.

Anticipated Aid for your Promissory Note

OSAP, award and scholarship amounts will be posted as Anticipated Aid on your Quest account each term. Fall 2020 full-time OSAP funding will be added as anticipated aid on Quest accounts starting August 5 and will continue to be updated throughout the Promissory Note period.

OSAP Processing
