Classics Specific Bursaries

It is the priority of Queen's University to help those students in the greatest financial difficulty who have the fewest options to secure funding on their own.  The Queen's General Bursary is a non-repayable grant available to students in all years of study who have a demonstrated financial need.

Within Queen's General Bursaries, there are named bursary awards (for which a separate application is not required), some of which are specific to Classics students (see list below). All students who wish to be considered for a General Bursary (named or not) must submit a General Bursary application. If a student demonstrates financial need based on their application, but does not qualify for any of the named bursary awards, he/she will be granted assistance through the general pooled bursary fund.
