Application Instructions for Scholarships and Awards

Michener offers a range of scholarships and awards that recognize a student’s academic achievements. We invite all students to apply for as many scholarships, awards and bursaries they are eligible for as outlined in the criteria for each award.  Students must submit an application form, indicating all of the scholarships, awards and bursaries they wish to be considered for, and include the requisite financial need/bursary application form.

The Scholarship and Awards Committee is made up of voting and non-voting members.  The voting members are responsible for determining the best candidate for each of the scholarships and awards.  The non-voting members act in an advisory capacity and do not participate in the selection of recipients of the scholarships and awards.

Meeting the financial need requirement criteria for a scholarship or award:

Many of our scholarships and awards benefitted from the Ontario Trust for Student Support (OTSS).  The OTSS was established by the Government of Ontario to encourage companies and individuals to contribute to permanent endowment funds to assist Ontario’s college and university students with financial need.   The goal of the OTSS is to ensure that academically qualified individuals who, for financial reasons, may not otherwise be able to attend Michener.  Students applying for one of these scholarships or awards must submit a financial need assessment form, along with their scholarship application.

Where a nomination is required for a scholarship or award that benefitted from the OTSS program, the student selected must meet the minimum level of financial need as described in the financial need assessment form.

Apply for a Scholarship


There is an expectation the student, and where applicable his or her family, will participate in financing the student’s post-secondary education.  Should additional support be needed and the student has applied for OSAP funding, Michener Bursaries are intended to assist with tuition, book costs and living expenses.  Bursaries are allocated on the basis of demonstrated financial need. Financial need is determined based on each of the following factors where applicable; student and parent/partner income, the number of dependents in the family, and the applicant’s assets, including savings.

To be eligible for a bursary, applicants must:

  1. Be a student in good academic standing;
  2. Enrolled in a full-time program;
  3. Be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada;
  4. Have accumulated government student financial debt;
  5. Have exhausted all OSAP opportunities/eligibility; and
  6. Complete ALL sections of the bursary application form.

Due to the sensitive nature of the information collected on the application forms, bursaries are assessed in the strictest confidence.

Awards by Nomination are awarded to students based on the nominations provided by Michener faculty, clinical coordinators, or program chairs. Where an award criteria requires a nomination and letters of support, the original nomination is not also considered a letter of support. The letters of support must come from other individuals who wish to support the nomination.
