School of Medicine Students

Financing your Doctor in Medicine education will involve a number of funding sources including some or all of the following programs.


Incoming First Year Medical Students:

Medicine Admission Bursary:

School of Medicine Admission Bursaries are non-repayable grants. Financial need is the primary consideration in the selection of bursary recipients. Please note: assessment of eligibility for School of Medicine Admission Bursaries is independent of your assessment for admission to the School of Medicine.

School of Medicine students

To be eligible for a School of Medicine Admission Bursary a student must:

  • Be entering full-time studies in the first year of an undergraduate degree program in the School of Medicine at Queen's in September
  • Be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada
  • Demonstrate financial need*
  • Be accessing government student assistance for their first year of medical studies**
  • Have prior accumulated government student financial debt**

Note: Students applying for Queen’s Accelerated Route to Medical School (QuARMS) are not eligible to apply for the Medicine Admission Bursary until they enter into the School of Medicine after year 2 of their undergraduate Bachelor program. QuARMS applicants may apply for financial need-based assistance on the Admission Bursary Application available on their SOLUS Student Center.

* Demonstrated financial need is based on, but not restricted to the following factors: student and family (if applicable) income, number of dependents in family (if applicable), applicant's assets (including savings), the full cost of the program of studies, books and supplies and basic living expenses. Students must take advantage of assistance from other sources such as government student assistance and/or a student line of credit.

** As part of the consideration for a School of Medicine Admission Bursary there is an emphasis on assisting those students who have and continue to demonstrate need over and above the maximum funding available through government student assistance. Therefore, it is expected that students who have prior accumulated government student financial debt are demonstrating a higher level of financial need. Students who have either not received government student assistance or qualified for only a small amount of government assistance likely have other options available to them and may not be considered for bursary assistance.

If you are selected for an interview with the School of Medicine you will receive additional information about submitting a School of Medicine Admission Bursary. 

By submitting a School of Medicine Admission Bursary application you will also be automatically assessed for the named School of Medicine Admission Bursaries (there is no separate application for these awards).  For a complete list of the named School of Medicine Admission Bursaries please visit the Awards List section of the website.
