Awards, Bursaries, Funding and Scholarships

Financials are a significant component to consider when exploring post secondary. Financial commitments vary and will look different for all learners. Indigenous students are often unaware of their eligibility for funding courses, understanding the application process, submitting documentation and/or not knowing where to start that independent research.

There are many Indigenous-specific scholarships and bursaries available to students, whether you are a current Ontario Tech student, incoming Ontario Tech student or community member looking for community organizations that can help fund your post-secondary education journey.

Bursaries are awarded to students based on their financial need. Occasionally, there may be other requirements or qualifications such as:

  • Enrolment in a specific program.
  • Membership in a certain organization.

Scholarships are non-repayable awards given to recognize the high level of excellence a student has achieved in their studies.

Awards are funding provided to students who have met specific criteria. Awards can be a combination of scholarships and bursaries and do not have to be repaid. Learn more about awards.
