How to apply

  • Fill out your Student Financial Profile (SFP), a multipurpose online application form used for financial awards and on-campus employment, at the start of each academic session. Without this profile, you cannot be considered for any awards or bursaries that are based on financial need.
  • When you fill out your SFP, you’ll automatically be considered for various awards and bursaries.
  • Some awards might have specific requirements and require additional documentation. Find the full list of awards using them using the awards search tool.
  • Automatic scholarships are based on grades, so you don’t need to apply.
  • Some entrance awards are specifically for first-year students.
