Awards and Financial Assistance



Prospective Students

Please visit the Awards website.

Student Financial Assistance

Student Awards, as part of the Office of the University Registrar, plays a key role in supporting the University’s mission. Our goal is to ensure that all students have the opportunity to attend Queen’s, regardless of their personal financial circumstances. To achieve this, a variety of funding sources may be required.

The Student Awards Office is responsible for administering all merit-based undergraduate funding and all need-based funding for both undergraduate and graduate students. Merit-based (scholarship) funding recognizes and rewards students for their achievement, both academic and extra-curricular. Need-based funding (bursaries, awards, work study, loans and grants) is disbursed to students on the basis of demonstrated financial need. Listed directly below is general information as it pertains to the various student financial assistance programs administered by the Student Awards Office. For more detailed information please refer to either the Student Awards website or contact the office.

Awards Officers are available throughout the year to provide financial advising on budgeting and the various options available to assist students with financing their Queen’s education.

Government Student Financial Assistance (Loans and Grants)

The federal and provincial governments provide student financial assistance for Canadian citizens, permanent residents, and protected persons studying at the post-secondary level. This assistance is intended to supplement student and family resources and recipients must demonstrate financial need. This assistance is offered in the form of repayable loans and in some cases may also include a limited amount of grant or bursary funding.

The appropriate provincial or territorial authorities will evaluate student applications and will provide funding. Funding options, eligibility criteria and regulations vary by jurisdiction. Students from Ontario will access government student financial assistance through the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP): osap.gov.on.ca. Students from a province or territory outside Ontario must apply for government student financial assistance through their home province or territory.

Other government student financial assistance programs include:

Canada Study Grant for the Accommodation of Students with Permanent Disabilities

This program is designed to assist disabled students with disability-related costs of equipment and/or services associated with their participation in post-secondary studies. Students must first apply for funding from their applicable government student financial assistance program for the current academic year and must demonstrate financial need. Students must also be registered with the Health, Counselling and Disability Services Office at Queen’s University.

OSAP Child-Care Bursary

The OSAP Child-Care Bursary is provided to eligible Ontario students who, in relation to their participation in post-secondary studies, incur child-care costs for three or more children.

Ontario Special Bursary

Ontario students with low income and enrolled in part-time studies (as defined by the government - maximum 59% of a full course load in each term of study) due to family responsibilities or other personal circumstances may be eligible. Students must be enrolled in a program leading to a degree or diploma and generally cannot have a previous post-secondary degree or diploma.

Part-time Canada Student Loan/Canada Study Grant (CSG) Program

Canadian citizens and permanent residents with low income and enrolled in part-time studies (as defined by the government - maximum 59% of a full course load in each term of study) may be eligible. Students must be residents of a province or territory that participates in the Canada Student Loans program. To qualify for the CSG students must be studying part-time due to family responsibilities or other personal circumstances.

Work Study Program

Queen’s University and the Government of Ontario fund this program. The objective is to provide an opportunity for students in financial need to receive priority for certain part-time jobs, generally on-campus, during the academic terms. Applications for the Fall-Winter academic session are available in May and applications for the Spring-Summer academic session are available in February.

General Bursaries

Queen’s University bursary assistance is granted after the student’s own financial contribution to the cost of his/her education, parental assistance, government aid assistance, or a bank line of credit have been exhausted. Financial need is the primary consideration in the granting of a bursary.

In order to be considered for the majority of Queen’s bursaries, including the ones specifically pertaining to Engineering and Applied Science students, students need to complete a single General Bursary application form (unless otherwise noted in the terms of the awards), which is available from the Student Awards website. The deadline for this application is 31 October. If a student is not granted an Engineering and Applied Science bursary or award he/she is still eligible to receive General Bursary funds. Funds will be distributed at the beginning of Winter Term. Bursaries and awards are paid to the student’s tuition account if a balance is owing, and any remaining funds are paid by cheque or electronic funds transfer. The values of the bursaries and awards are variable, unless otherwise noted. For complete terms of these, and other named bursaries and awards see the Student Awards website.

Short-term Loans

Short-term loans (of 90 days or less) may be granted in emergency situations if a full-time student is experiencing temporary cash-flow difficulties and can provide satisfactory evidence that he/she will have sufficient resources to repay the loan on or before the due date. Short-term loans are approved on the basis of financial need to assist students in meeting those expenses normally incurred in support of attendance at the University during the current academic session.

Entrance Awards

Queen’s Entrance scholarships, bursaries and awards are not listed in this Calendar. Details on these awards are available on the Student Awards web-site or in the Viewbook brochure. The Viewbook should be available in the Guidance Offices of secondary schools or may be obtained by writing to the Office of the University Registrar (Admission Services), Queen’s University, Kingston, ON K7L 3N6

Scholarships

Queen’s upper-year scholarships are generally available to full-time students in their respective faculty/school and who will be returning to full-time studies in the year following the award. For the most part, separate applications are not required. Candidates will be considered for those awards for which they are eligible in competition with all other qualified candidates. In instances where a scholarship application is required, specific instructions about the application process are given in the description of the award.
