Assistance in the form of non-repayable scholarships, awards and bursaries is provided to eligible students to assist them with the costs of their education. Student Awards will allow you to identify the awards, scholarships, and bursaries you may be eligible for, apply online, and track the status of your application.

 Applications for student awards are now available through the Student Awards tab in Stu-View.
