What is a bursary?
A bursary is money given to a student based on financial need rather than on academic achievement. You don't need to pay back any money you're awarded as a bursary.
Approximately 1,000 first-year Waterloo students who are Ontario residents with financial need and who are starting university or college for the first time may receive a Waterloo entrance bursary, valued from $500 to $4,000.

- Fill in all fields on the application. You will need income and tax information from your parents, guardians, or spouse.
