Scholarships and Awards recognize excellence in a student’s studies. Each scholarship or award has specific criteria which may include program, level of study, community involvement, financial need etc.
Named Bursaries are awarded on the basis of students meeting the criteria outlined in the Named Bursary.
General Bursaries are awarded each semester. General Bursary applications are assessed based upon demonstrated financial need (student income and expenditures) and whether they have exhausted government funding.
To be eligible for a bursary, applicants must have demonstrated financial need and:
- Be a student in good academic standing;
- Enrolled in a full-time program;
- Be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada;
- Have accumulated government student financial debt;
- Have exhausted all OSAP opportunities/eligibility; and
- Complete ALL sections of the Bursary Application Form.
Each individual scholarship has its own set of criteria. For details, please refer to the main Scholarships and Awards page.
To apply, click on the “Start Application” button at the bottom of each individual award page and complete the online application by September 27.
Prior to submitting your application, please review this <https://michener.ca/admissions/scholarships-bursaries-and-awards/scholarships-awards-2/> page listing available Scholarships, Awards & Named Bursaries. Review the criteria to be sure it is available to your Program and Year enrolled and that you meet all criteria. Then, prepare any documents (e.g. letter of application or references) in Word or PDF format. And, if the Scholarship, Award or Named Bursary requires you to demonstrate financial need, have your income and expense information handy to enter on page 2 of the application.
Some of the awards at Michener are granted by nomination only. Nominations are provided by Michener faculty, clinical coordinators, or program chairs, as specified in the individual description. Where an award criterion requires a nomination and letters of support, the letter of support cannot come from the original nominator.
There is no limit to the number of awards you can apply for and potentially receive. Review the listed criteria and be sure to meet the criteria for each award.
In most cases, recipients are selected by the Scholarships & Awards Committee, unless otherwise noted in the award description. The Scholarships & Awards Committee is made up of Michener donors, alumni and staff. The selection is based on each individual award criteria.
The deadline for both nominations and applications is September 27 every year.
Only the successful recipients will be contacted.
Students will be notified if they are a recipient. All students are invited to the annual Student Awards Ceremony held in the Fall each year.
Soon after the Student Awards Ceremony, all award winners will be contacted with next steps to pick up their award or have it sent to them.
All recipients are encouraged to write a thank you note to the donor. Please forward your thank you to the Registrar’s Office at email@example.com
Yes, awards are considered part of a student’s taxable income for the year. Michener’s Finance Department will issue T4A forms to all recipients by the end of February, reflecting the value of the awards issued in the previous calendar year.
