What Bursaries Mean to Students
For students receiving performance‐based bursaries, it is a much welcomed and public recognition of their hard work and abilities culminating in academic achievement. For those receiving leadership-based bursaries, it’s recognition of their extra contribution to making a richer student experience, and fuller campus and community life.
For students who have received bursaries based on need, our student life advisors and financial aid officers attest to the very real need in our student community. Every day we hear stories of struggles and hardship, and we hear the sigh of relief and thanks from bursary recipients. Bursaries often make the difference for students to be able to come to college, and once they are here, to reducing financial stress that interferes with their ability to succeed in their studies. These awards were created because someone an individual, or a company or organization reflected on the value that they have received personally or corporately because of post‐secondary education.
