Dalhousie University's Bursary program provides funds to assist students in financial need. Bursaries are typically smaller amounts of money (from $200-$800), intended to supplement other funding sources. Bursaries won't make up a major part of your funding, but they can fill in the gaps.
Eligible students: Undergraduate, Diploma of Dental Hygiene, and MSW students are eligible to apply for a bursary. See full eligibility criteria.
The undergraduate bursary application will be available through Dal Online during the dates below. Once you login to Dal Online, select the "Student Awards and Financial Aid" menu option, then select "Apply for Financial Aid".
You may apply for a bursary once per academic term. Once decisions are made, approximately two weeks after the bursary deadline, an email will be sent to your Dalhousie email address.
