Law bursary application

The 2018-19 Fall/Spring Faculty of Law Bursary Application is now open.

Law bursary policy: General principles and criteria for use in determining financial need.

If you are newly admitted and your admission acceptance deadline is after the law bursary deadline, you will receive a personal bursary deadline.

A fair bursary process depends on accurate information. Be candid and forthcoming in completing this application. To knowingly provide false or misleading information is a serious breach of your ethical obligations and may disentitle you for bursary assistance as well as take resources away from students with genuine financial need.


The Faculty of Law's bursary application for the Fall/Winter 2018-19 academic year is now open.

Apply for your maximum eligible government student loans before submitting your bursary application. We will need your student loan notification of assessment or funding summary to complete your application.

Read the application carefully and provide all the information requested. Use projected figures where necessary. If there is some information you do not have, state why you do not have it. If your application is incomplete, you may not be eligible for a bursary.
