We have a very generous financial assistance program. We can assist you in meeting the costs of studying Theology at the School of Religion.
Students in the 24-month MDiv/BTh program will receive $10,000 in bursary assistance over the course of their program. This bursary is automatic upon admission and students do not need to apply for it. Students are eligible to apply for further bursary assistance, which will be assessed based on financial need.
Students in other Theology degree programs, studying full-time (the equivalent of 16.00 units per term), can expect to receive bursary assistance of $6,000 or more during their program of study upon application and demonstrated need.
Students studying half-time are also eligible for bursary assistance; the amount will depend on financial need and number of courses being taken each term. These bursaries do require application.
These sources of financial assistance are available to students in theology after they have reached the limits of their own resources. All agencies providing aid, including the School of Religion, will require that other sources of income have been accessed, and expect an honest disclosure of personal financial information. In view of this, it is a good idea to prepare in advance a financial statement and a realistic budget.
Please print, complete and submit the bursary application (link to PDF below) to the Bursary Committee by September 15 (or the closest business day). Bursary applications will be considered in September only, with disbursal of funds by the end of September. Students should estimate costs for any courses they are taking during the coming year, Fall, Winter and Summer terms. Questions about the application may be directed to Cheryl O'Shea, Admissions/Student Services Coordinator, 613-533-2109.
