Carleton University has one of the most generous scholarship and bursary programs in Canada. Last year, more than 12,000 scholarships and bursaries totalling over $24 million were awarded to undergraduate students.
A bursary is a monetary award similar to a scholarship in that you are not expected to repay it, but is awarded primarily on financial need rather than academic achievement.
A great way to offset the expense of university is to have a part-time job on campus. At Carleton, most campus units hire students throughout the academic year. Senior students can often find positions with departments as research assistants. A part-time job not only puts extra money in your pocket, but also provides valuable job experience at the same time. Carleton’s Career Services provides students with job search support and on-campus career counselling.
The Work Study Program provides part-time, on-campus employment for those students demonstrating financial need.
If you are currently attending an Ontario high school, your guidance office can provide information on the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP), which may help cover the cost of your post-secondary studies.
If you do not live in Ontario, you may be eligible for out-of-province student assistance through your home province or territory.
