Bursary Search Suggestions

StFX offers over a hundred different bursary awards. Some of these bursaries have no criteria, other than that you be a fulltime student in good academic standing. For a list of these awards, click here.
 
Some of these awards have very specific criteria. Not nearly as many people will qualify for these bursaries, but those who do will have a much better chance of getting an award because they will be competing with a much smaller pool of candidates. (Please do not apply for a bursary unless you meet the criteria—the more time our office has to spend weeding out unqualified applicants, the less time we have to focus on helping students.)
 
If you would like to find bursaries for which you may be uniquely qualified, try using the following search process:
 
  1. Go to the complete alphabetized list of bursaries here (you may want to right click the link and open it up in a new window so you can see this page while you do your search).
  2. Press Ctrl + F to open up a “Find” box at the top of the Bursary List page.
  3. Refer to the list of search terms at the bottom of this page for terms that apply to you and your situation.
  4. Enter the search term that applies to you in the “Find” box (do not include anything in parentheses). The find function will take you to each place on the page where this word appears. Read the description of each bursary you jump to to see if you meet the criteria.
  5. Hit enter or click on “Next” or “Previous” to move through the page.
