Scholarship and Bursary Information

Scholarships are awarded to students to assist with the cost of university, college or other post-secondary training.

Bursaries are awards that are given to students with financial need being a major factor in the criteria for the award

The criteria for scholarships will differ and may include academic achievements, community involvement, volunteer work, extra-curricular activities, personal interests, athleticism, as well as the program the student plans to study.

 Some tips:

Be prepared to do some research to find scholarships that meet your unique situation.

Look through scholarship websites in Manitoba and check which awards are available from the university or college that you plan to attend.

Activity groups (such as 4-H or minor hockey) have scholarships. Inquire within the groups you are involved.

Ask someone to proofread your application or essay. It is easy to overlook errors in your own writing.

Be involved with school, volunteer and community organizations.  Keep a detailed list of all activities.
