General Bursaries

The Michener Institute of Education at UHN awards general bursaries each academic year (pending availability of funds). General bursaries are awarded based on the assessment of demonstrated financial need (considering student and parent/partner income, number of dependents in the family, assets, including savings and immediate living and educational expenses).

This year, the applications will become a rolling application, meaning that students will be assessed for both the Fall and Winter semesters.  Summer General Bursary applications will be separate, and information will be released in 2024.
