Bursaries for International Students
A Bursary is a monetary award that is granted on the basis of financial need. Bursaries are different than scholarships. Scholarships are merit-based and are awarded for academic achievement. Bursaries are based on financial-need and do not have to be repaid.
Bursaries ranging from $100 to $1,500 are available for undergraduate US/International students who demonstrate financial need in order to finance their studies after completing one year of undergraduate studies at Carleton University.
To be eligible for a Carleton Bursary for International Students:
- You are an international student with a valid study permit.
- You have completed your first year of study at Carleton University.
- You have demonstrated financial need.
- Bursary applicants must have satisfactory academic standing.
International students applying for a bursary follow the same process as domestic students. Students may access Bursary and Award Applications through the Undergraduate Online Application Forms system on Carleton Central, under the Awards and Financial Assistance section. Follow the instructions to submit your application.
