Tuition Bursaries | St. Clair College

Domestic full-time post-secondary students who have a satisfactory academic standing (minimum GPA 2.0) are eligible to apply for a tuition bursary. Students must be in financial need in order to receive assistance. For administration purposes, the College defines financial need, as follows: "Where the total annual cost of attending College exceeds available income". The amount of the tuition bursary awarded varies based on the number of eligible applicants and the funds available. Only one tuition bursary may be awarded per academic year. (Please note: The funding for this award is funded through "tuition set-aside" government monies for funded students only).


A Tuition Bursary is a gift of money from the College that is awarded once per academic year to a deserving student who shows a financial need. A T4A slip will be issued for income tax purposes. Due to the number of applications we receive and the limited amount of funds available for distribution, bursaries will be awarded based on the number of applicants who qualify.

Who may Apply?

Tuition bursaries are available to domestic post-secondary students who are registered full-time and have a satisfactory academic standing (minimum GPA 2.0).

Please note: If you qualify for a Tuition Bursary, processing takes approximately 2-4 weeks. If you have outstanding tuition, your Bursary will be applied towards the debt. If your tuition account is in good standing, you will receive a cheque in the mail (after requesting your refund). Please ensure your address is correct on your SIS account.

Where to Apply?

Applications will be posted each term on the Scholarship & Bursary Applications page.
