Eligibility Every year, the University of Manitoba offers a wide-range of bursaries to both new and continuing full and part-time students who are enrolled in school from September to April who have a demonstrated financial need and a minimum academic standing. Bursaries - student funding which does not need to be repaid - range in amounts from $100 to $1,000, with over $3 million awarded annually. Eligibility
  • All students must complete courses in both Fall & Winter terms to be eligible (one term only students are not eligible for the bursary program)
  • Students must register for and complete a minimum of 6 credit hours per term (graduate students do not have to adhere to credit hour minimums but must be listed as a full time student with the Faculty of Graduate Studies)
  • Financial need must be clearly documented on the application. Students who have 2010-2011 government student loans must provide copies of their current “official” government loan assessment (no ‘quick assessments’) with their General Bursary applications. Copies must bear the students full name and study period. Manitoba students must submit a photocopy (DO NOT SUBMIT ORIGINALS) of your Notice of Assistance letter; page 1 and page 2. We will not accept government assessment notices after October 1st.
