Residence Experience Bursaries

The department of Student Housing & Residence Life highly values co-curricular learning experiences for students during their time in University. However, we recognize, these once in a lifetime experiences can be expensive and consequently not always accessible to everyone. Therefore, the department has developed a Residence Experience Bursary to help provide financial funds to current residence students so they can attend/participate in a co-curricular experience in which they may otherwise not be able to attend. The total amount of the bursary will be determined by the Bursary Committee and will be shared with the student once they have been awarded the bursary. The funds will be based on individual financial need. Funds are extremely limited so please ensure requests are accurate to only what is needed.

Residence Experience Bursaries are currently available for the following projects:
