Every year, the University of Manitoba offers a wide-range of bursaries to both new and continuing full time and part-time students who are enrolled in school from September to April who have a demonstrated financial need and a minimum academic standing. Bursaries (student funding that does not need to be repaid) range in amounts from $100 to $1,000 with over $6 million awarded annually.
Bursary awards are primarily based upon financial need (as opposed to scholarships which are primarily based upon academics/marks). All bursary applications require students to complete a budget section. Please read carefully as the budget refers to a specific time period.
Please read below the eligibility requirements for the annual Fall/Winter University of Manitoba General Bursary application and the annual Spring/Summer University of Manitoba General Bursary application. Students can apply for the University of Manitoba General Bursary by applying online through their Aurora Student account. Paper applications of the University of Manitoba General Bursary application will not be accepted.
