Scholarships reward exceptional academic achievement and help us attract the best and brightest students to our innovative programs, while bursaries make education possible to those with limited financial means. Carleton University is proud to have one of Canada’s best student aid programs, providing more than 10,000 scholarships and bursaries each year. Alumni and friends of the university make this success possible.
Despite a strong campus-wide financial aid program, the Faculty of Engineering and Design is committed to working with donors to increase the number of scholarships and bursaries, particularly those available to recruit and reward female and Indigenous students interested in pursuing a STEM education.
Donor-funded awards represent a ‘win’ for all involved. Students are recognized for their exceptional achievements and are inspired by the continued involvement of alumni and industry in their education.
