UFV Bursaries

What is a bursary?

Bursaries are a supplemental source of funding for students with demonstrated financial need.  First consideration is given to students who have exhausted all other types of funding (i.e. government or financial institution funding programs). Students who have not accessed funding may receive bursaries based on the availability of bursary funds.

  • Provide all required documentation as per eligibility criteria to UFV Financial Aid & Awards
