Undergraduate Admission Bursary
An Admission Bursary is based on an assessment of your financial need. It is an amount of money you receive to assist you in financing your education that you do not have to pay back.
- Students applying for an Admission Bursary should also apply for government student financial aid
- BISC students are considered for the Tricolour Bursary by submitting an Admission Bursary application
- As a future Queen's student, you have lots of options for financial aid
To be eligible for most admission bursaries you must be:
- A Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada
- Demonstrate financial need based on, but not restricted to, the following factors:
- Student and family income
- Decisions regarding eligibility for Queen's bursary assistance are based on the parent's ability, not willingness, to assist their dependant
- Number of dependants in the family
- Applicant's assets (including savings, anticipated resources through government student financial aid)
- Full cost of the program of study, books, supplies, and basic living expenses
- Student and family income
- Entering post-secondary studies for the first time
- Entering the first year of full-time studies in an undergraduate degree program in September or be participating in the Queen's First-Year Program at the Bader International Study Centre (Herstmonceux Castle)
If you indicate on your Admission Bursary application that you want to be considered for Work Study it will have no bearing on your assessment for bursary funding.
International and U.S. students should visit the International and U.S. Students section for more information about admission awards and other sources of funding.
The Admission Bursary application is available on your SOLUS Student Centre, under the finances section by clicking on the "Queen's Admission Bursary Application” link.
We recommend students to submit their application by February 15, 2022. Applications will continue to be accepted after this date. Students are encouraged to submit their Admission Bursary Application at the same time they are applying for admission to Queen's.
Most students selected to receive an admission bursary will be notified with their offer of admission. Students should view their SOLUS Student Centre to see if they have been selected for a bursary or award for the program they have been offered admission to.
