Financial Support

We want to help you feel prepared for the financial demands of a university education. There are many forms of financial assistance to help you invest in your future: scholarships, awards and bursaries, student loans, lines of credit and grants.

Scholarships, awards and bursaries

As a MacEwan University student, you are eligible for a number of scholarships, awards and bursaries. Some are open to all students; others are program specific or for Indigenous students only. Contact kihêw waciston's student advisors or browse through our online database to find out which ones you are eligible for.

Indigenous student funding

Band, settlement and regional council funding are some of the most common sources of funding for First Nations, Métis, Inuit and northern students. As well, funding can be accessed through government initiatives and non-profit organizations.

The following websites are a good starting point for learning about funding opportunities for your post-secondary education.
