Applying for Bursaries

Dalhousie University’s Undergraduate Bursary program provides funds to assist students in financial need. Bursaries are typically smaller amounts of money, intended to supplement other funding sources. Bursaries won’t make up a major part of your funding, but they can fill in the gaps.
