Student Financial Profile (SFP)

The Student Financial Profile is a multi-purpose online application form that is used to apply for scholarships, bursaries and on-campus employment programs such as Research at York (RAY), Work/Study, College Life at York (CLAY) and York Engaged Students (YES). You should complete the SFP at the start of each academic session (once for fall/winter and once for summer) to be considered for a variety of programs.

Bursary for students affected by the Labour Disruption

To be considered, please complete the Request for Additional Financial Assistance. You will be required to provide a detailed statement explaining how you have been impacted and to submit relevant supporting documentation. Completion of the Student Financial Profile (SFP) may be required for your assessment. If you have not submitted the SFP and it is deemed to be necessary, you will be contacted by email.
