Bursaries are non-repayable grants offered by the university that are awarded on the basis of financial need.  Bursaries supplement a student's primary source of funding such as OSAP, bank loan/line of credit and parental/spousal contributions.  Financial need is determined in a manner similar to the Canada and Ontario Student Loans assessment.  It involves assessing the costs of the program that students are registered in, as well as any available resources (RESP's, part-time employment, etc.). 

In order to be eligible for bursary assistance, students must be Canadian citizens or permanent residents, be registered at Huron in a full or part-time program and demonstrate genuine financial need. 

Bursaries can be applied for at any time as the need arises until funds are exhausted.  There is no deadline.
