School of Medicine Admission Bursary Application

School of Medicine admission bursaries are non-repayable grants. Financial need is the primary consideration in the selection of bursary recipients.

Please note: assessment of eligibility for School of Medicine Admission Bursaries is independent of your assessment for admission to the School of Medicine.

Eligibility

If you are selected for an interview with the School of Medicine you will receive additional information about submitting a School of Medicine Admission Bursary. 

To be eligible for a School of Medicine Admission Bursary a student must:

  • Be entering full-time studies in the first year of an undergraduate degree program in the School of Medicine at Queen's in September
  • Be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada
  • Demonstrate financial need*
  • Be accessing government student aid for their first year of medical studies**
  • 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 dependents 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 aid and/or a student line of credit.

** As part of the consideration for a School of Medicine 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 aid. 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 aid, or qualified for only a small amount of government aid, likely have other options available to them and may not be considered for bursary assistance.

School of Medicine students will automatically be assessed for the School of Medicine named admission bursaries by submitting a Queen's School of Medicine Admission Bursary application. Please note: only the name of the award will change after a student has been selected; the value of their bursary will not change depending on the name of the award. 

There is no separate application for these awards.
