There are two sources of bursaries on campus:
Undergraduate students who have paid SU fees and have a shortfall, based on a moderate standard of living, can apply for the Access Fund.
Full-time undergraduate or graduate students with a shortfall, based on a moderate standard of living, can apply for supplementary bursaries offered through University Bursaries and Emergency Funding (UBEF).
Students are also welcome to come into the SFAIC office to ask about these bursaries and how to apply!
Are you still looking for more money to fund your ever-growing education costs? Please note that there are numerous opportunities available from various sources, both on- and offline.
Students may also want to check out any organizations they belong to to see if they are eligible for any additional funding options. Remember to check early and often as application deadlines are varied.
Any bursary, award or scholarship amount must be declared on student loan forms and students must notify the Student Finance Board if any funds are received during the academic year. Scholarships and bursaries are fully exempt with the Alberta government, whereas there is a $1800 exemption limit for scholarships and bursaries with the federal government. Anything over this amount is considered a resource when calculating a student's financial need.
