The Office of the University Registrar - Student Awards at Queen’s University administers a variety of programs and services to assist students in financing their education. We’re committed to providing you with a full range of financial options including scholarships, bursaries, work programs, and government student financial assistance in the form of grants and loans – not just in your entering year, but throughout your studies at Queen’s.
Financial assistance is generally defined in two categories. Merit-based funding (i.e. scholarships) recognizes and rewards students for their outstanding academic and extra-curricular achievements. Need-based funding (i.e. bursaries, work programs, government grants and loans) is available to students with demonstrated financial need.
Queen’s offers Admission bursaries (non-repayable grants) to entering students offered admission who demonstrate financial need. Our on-line Admission Bursary application is available on the Student Awards web site.
In 2011, over 50% of the incoming undergraduate class received a scholarship and/or bursary from Queens University.
Queen's is committed to ensuring that you are able to complete your degree, regardless of your financial circumstances. Please contact the Student Awards Office for more information about scholarships and student financial aid.
You can apply for an Admission bursary as soon as you apply to Queen's. In most cases, we let you know if you are receiving an Admission bursary with your offer of admission. The last date to apply for an Admission bursary is Feb 15.
