Student Awards, as part of the Office of the University Registrar, plays a key role in supporting the University’s mission. Our goal is to ensure that all students have the opportunity to attend Queen’s, regardless of their personal financial circumstances. To achieve this, a variety of funding sources may be required.
The Student Awards office is responsible for administering all merit-based undergraduate funding and all need-based funding for both undergraduate and graduate students. Merit-based (scholarship) funding recognizes and rewards students for their achievement, both academic and extra-curricular. Need-based funding (bursaries, awards, work study, loans and grants) is disbursed to students on the basis of demonstrated financial need. Listed directly below is general information as it pertains to the various student financial assistance programs administered by the Student Awards Office. For more detailed information please refer to either the Student Awards web-site or contact the office as indicated below.
Awards Officers are available throughout the year to provide financial advising on budgeting and the various options available to assist students with financing their Queen’s education.
