Bursaries and awards are “free money” given out by York, the Friends of Glendon, and other private donors. They are granted on the basis of student financial need, with some consideration given to academic progress. Some awards will have additional criteria which you can find on the individual award descriptions.
Bursaries are given out through the Student Financial Profile. To be considered for a bursary you need to have applied for OSAP or your province’s government funding and to fill out the Student Financial Profile, usually online available in late-August or early September. To be considered for Fall bursaries, apply by October 15th. To be considered for Winter bursaries, apply by January 31st.
Education or Gender and Women’s Studies students can also apply for additional awards through their respective schools at Keele. These awards require an application.
