Scholarships & Bursaries

Laurentian has some of the most generous scholarship and bursary offerings across Canada.

Financial assistance is available in the form of scholarships, bursaries, grants, and loans. Last year alone, Laurentian awarded close $4 million in scholarships and bursaries to undergraduate students. But it is important to be informed, to ask questions, and to apply.
