A scholarship is an award recognizing academic excellence or achievement. In certain cases, financial need may be taken into account as a secondary criterion to decide between candidates of approximately equal achievement.
A bursary is an award that is distributed based on financial need. When applying for a bursary, you must supply a financial disclosure form. Bursaries may also request that applicants meet certain geographical or demographic requirements. All bursaries are presented at the Awards Ceremony in the fall, unless otherwise noted.
An award is a loosely defined term referring to awards that are neither scholarships nor bursaries. In certain cases, awards may be plaques or recognition certificates, while in other cases awards may be professional memberships coupled with cash prizes. All awards are presented at the Awards Ceremony in the fall, unless otherwise noted.
General bursaries, based on financial need, are available from funds set aside from tuition fees. These bursaries are awarded in both November and February. Contact the Financial Assistance Office for further details and an application. Please note that in addition to bursaries, a total of $300,000 is available College-wide through the Loyalist work study program.
An entering student is an individual who is entering post-secondary education for the first time. An entering student may not necessarily have come straight from high school. An entering student may also be a mature student who is entering college after several years in the workforce.
A returning student is an individual who has completed their first year of studies in a two- or three-year Loyalist College program.
A graduating student is an individual who is completing their two- or three-year program of study at Loyalist College. Many award and scholarship recipients are identified by program coordinators as having excelled in their studies. These awards generally recognize achievement once a student is graduating from Loyalist College.
A post-graduate student is someone who has graduated from a university or college program and is now entering post-graduate studies at Loyalist College.
Students are also encouraged to pursue awards that are available in the community and not exclusive to Loyalist College. Please check out the opportunities below.
