Faculty of Law Students

Financing your Law degree will involve a number of funding sources including some or all of the following programs:


Incoming First Year Law Students:

Admission Bursary:

Faculty of Law Admission Bursaries are non-repayable grants. Financial need is the primary consideration in the selection of bursary recipients. Please note: assessment of eligibility for Faculty of Law Admission Bursaries is independent of your assessment for admission to the Faculty of Law.

To be eligible for a Faculty of Law Admission Bursary a student must:Queen's law students

  • Be entering full-time studies in the first year of an undergraduate degree program in the Faculty of Law at Queen's in September
  • Be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada
  • Demonstrate financial need*
  • Be accessing government student assistance for their first year of studies in the Faculty of Law**
  • Have prior accumulated government student financial debt**

* Demonstrated financial need is based on, but not restricted to the following factors: student and family (if applicable) income, number of dependants in family (if applicable), applicant's assets (including savings), the full cost of the program of studies, books and supplies and basic living expenses. Students must take advantage of assistance from other sources such as government student assistance and/or a student line of credit.

** As part of the consideration for a Faculty of Law Admission Bursary there is an emphasis on assisting those students who have and continue to demonstrate need over and above the maximum funding available through government student assistance. Therefore, it is expected that students who have prior accumulated government student financial debt are demonstrating a higher level of financial need. Students who have either not received government student assistance or qualified for only a small amount of government assistance likely have other options available to them and may not be considered for bursary assistance.
