Scholarships & Bursaries

Student in black graduation gown

Our students want to be here. They have the drive, the skills, the desire to learn. But sometimes they don't have the money. Without financial support, many of our students simply cannot afford to go to university.

When you contribute to an entrance scholarship, you help students get in the door and reward them for the hard work they have done in getting here. When you contribute to retention bursaries, you help students who need financial support to continue their degree, diploma or certificate. Your donation gives our students the support they need, when they need it.



Support scholarships and bursaries

Our entrance scholarships and retention bursaries ensure that students who want to attend university have the financial means to do so.

Support for student athletes

When Ryan Benn received a Bill Comrie Hockey Scholarship, it was real game-changer. Each year, twelve Griffins hockey players receive the scholarship, benefitting from the generosity of philanthropist Bill Comrie.

It takes away some of the financial stress that comes with being a student and will go a long way in allowing me to focus more of my time and energy towards being the best student—and student athlete—I can be.
