Graduate Awards, Scholarships and Bursaries
Graduate students studying in the Faculty of Business Administration enjoy the opportunity of availing of a wide number of scholarship, bursary and award opportunities. Some of these opportunities are internal awards that are administered through the School of Graduate Studies, while others are managed directly by the scholarship agency. Scholarships are awarded based on the student’s superior academic performance in their programs. Our School of Graduate Studies’ searchable awards and scholarship database is an invaluable resource for identifying award, scholarship and bursary opportunities. The use of keywords and the appropriate filters allows students to identify the scholarships, awards and bursaries for which they may be eligible.
To be considered for an award, scholarship or bursary means achieving a high academic standard.
A scholarship is based on academic performance and is awarded to the student with the highest average meeting the conditions of the scholarship as outlined by the donor. Scholarship standing (a minimum of 75% average) is required for all scholarships.
A bursary is based primarily on financial need and may be awarded to full-time students who have a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 (out of a possible 4.0) and meet the other conditions of the bursary.
An award is offered to recognize special achievements or to assist with special projects or travel. Awards may be given to students who meet the conditions of the award and are in clear standing as defined by the University.
Many awards require community involvement, leadership or other specific criteria. In order to qualify for an award with additional scholarship criteria students must complete the appropriate application form.
