We offer a wide variety of awards, scholarships, and bursaries to our incoming students. With values ranging anywhere from $500 to $32,000 (and up to $100,000 for international students!), scholarships are a great opportunity to fund a significant portion of your education. Some are automatically awarded during the admissions process—like the Automatic Entrance Scholarships listed below—while others require an application.

Scholarships that require an application


Based on financial need, bursaries are another key funding source that you don’t have to pay back. However, some may have additional criteria such as extracurricular activities. To be considered, complete the online scholarships, awards, and bursaries application through MyFile once you’ve applied to Glendon.

The Online Scholarships, Awards, and Bursaries Application

This is an online application used to apply for hundreds of scholarships and bursaries even before you’ve been admitted to Glendon. It’s available in December through your MyFile account, using the reference number you receive when you apply. Fill it out as soon as you can ‘even if you haven’t received an offer yet’ so that we can let you know what funding is available to you.

Funding for Students with Disabilities

Funding is also available for students with diagnosed permanent disabilities to cover special services and education-related equipment. You can apply for this funding once you begin your studies in September; you can also apply for funding through OSAP.

International Students

Both international and domestic students can benefit from funding opportunities. For a full list of scholarships, check out York’s comprehensive financial page.

First and foremost, we encourage you to make inquiries with organizations in the country where you hold citizenship or permanent residency status.

York University (with which Glendon is affiliated) offers scholarships and bursaries to international students. It also administers on-campus employment programs as a means of financial aid. To be considered for a scholarship, bursary, or on-campus employment program, you must complete and submit your Student Financial Profile (SFP) online. You will need to resubmit your SFP at the start of each academic session (once for the fall/winter session and once for the summer session).
