Bursaries

We are proud of the innovative financial aid programs that are specifically designed to ensure an accessible education for all students. In 2018, University of Guelph students received more than $13 million in bursaries and nearly $1 million in need-based scholarships.

Bursaries are given to students who apply and demonstrate a financial shortfall in their study period budget; budgets include all financial resources (i.e. savings, government assistance programs, awards, employment income, etc.) against the cost of attendance for the study period. Academic achievement is not a consideration when awarding bursaries, however students must be registered in an academic term to receive a bursary.
