Bursaries are meant to supplement, not replace, provincial government aid programs and a student’s own resources. Bursaries are awarded each term to students with demonstrated financial need. The application is available, at the beginning of each term, in the myTrent student portal and to be considered for a bursary, students are required to submit a completed application online by the advertised deadline.
The application can be found on the MyTrent portal, under the Finances tab within Financial Aid.
