Laurier Donor Supported Bursary Program
Bursary assistance is granted based on financial need, and we have a number of bursaries which have been established by the generosity of our donors.
These bursaries are separate from the Laurier Tuition Bursary program and the Entrance Bursary program. It is possible to receive funding from both sources.
Not all eligible candidates will receive funding through the donor supported bursary program. These funds are granted to the candidates who meet all of the stated criteria for each opportunity, and demonstrate the greatest financial need, based on the completion of the financial statement which is included in the general online student profile.
There are bursary opportunities which are available to both full and part time students, as well as to graduate and undergraduate students. For your reference, the description(s) can be found online on our search engine, and this will provide specific descriptions for each opportunity (it is not possible to meet the eligibility criteria for all available donor supported bursary opportunities).
For the 2016/2017 academic year, the general student profile will be available on LORIS in early August, and the submission deadline will be late September 2016.
In order to be considered for assistance through the donor bursary program, it is mandatory to complete the "General Student profile" for all students by the stated deadlines (late submissions will not be accepted).
The profile can be accessed at any time during program timelines, click here to log in to LORIS.
Recipients will be notified by e-mail (to the WLU e-mail account), and these notifications will be sent no later than the end of February 2017. If selected, the funds will be applied to student accounts with the Business Office for the fall or winter academic term(s), as applicable. If selected as a recipient, the e-mail notification will contain specific details on the processing of the funds.
It is mandatory that the financial statement component of the online profile is completed. The General Student profile contains the required financial information.
Please note that this program is separate from our Entrance Bursary, Laurier Tuition Bursary, First Generation Bursary, and Post Secondary Aboriginal Education and Training Bursary programs. Separate applications are required for each of these programs. It is possible to receive bursary funding from more than one of these sources.
A complete list of opportunities which are available through this program are available on the Student Awards Search Engine.
Important Note: Due to the large number of eligible recipients, not all eligible candidates will be granted funding through the Donor Supported Bursary Program.
