The Faculty of Graduate Studies, and the Student Awards Office both work to provide funding opportunities to Graduate Students at Wilfrid Laurier University. The Student Awards Office also works with the Graduate Student's Association to administer financial aid programs for graduate students.
The Student Awards Office administers the graduate bursary program, as well as the competitive scholarships and awards program (funded by the generosity of our donors). Information on these programs is listed on the Student Awards website.
Information regarding graduate fellowships and scholarships is posted on the graduate studies bulletin board in the concourse of the Dr Alvin Woods Building and at the Careers Information Centre at 192 King Street North. Information is published in For Your Information, a publication of the Careers Information Centre, and in The Cord, the weekly student newspaper. Further information, application forms and advice may be obtained from the Graduate Studies Office.
The process for students who would like to be considered for all competitive scholarship and award opportunities which are available through our office involves the completion of the "general profile which is open to all students" and the applicable "faculty specific profile(s)". Students are asked to submit their student and applicable faculty specific profile(s) which are available online on LORIS during the program timelines.
