Scholarships, Awards and Bursaries

Scholarship recipients are selected largely on the basis of outstanding academic achievement. Academic excellence and financial need are the primary criteria for an award. There are a number of scholarships and awards available to assist undergraduate students with meeting the costs of university education.

Bursaries and awards are granted on the basis of student financial need, with some consideration given to academic progress. Some awards will have additional criteria which you can find on the individual award descriptions.

Students are encouraged to access all other available sources of funding (student loans, paid employment, parental and/or spousal contribution) to fully meet their expenses. Visit the OSAP (Ontario Student Assistance Program) website for details on the new grant programs available to students in certain income categories and the application process. Click on the Work/study link below for additional information on the campus employment opportunities available to you.

Note: Student Financial Services is responsible for approving all new awards at York University. Award creation is guided by the Ontario Human Rights Commission's Policy on Scholarships and Awards and award criteria are reviewed for this purpose.
