What is a Bursary?

A bursary is a financial award granted to students on the basis of financial need. Students must be in receipt of OSAP, or the financial assistance program from another provincial government, to be eligible to receive a bursary at Trent University. Bursaries do not replace OSAP or other provincial government funding, but rather, serve as a supplement to that funding source.


Visit the OSAP & Government Funding pages for more information on provincial government funding programs.
