Advantage Award

The Advantage Award is no longer offered to new applicants as of February 1st, 2014.  Funding offered to students through the Advantage Award prior to this date will be honoured as long as the students maintain eligibility.
 

 

 

The purpose of this award is to assist full-time students by guaranteeing a minimum level of income.  It would be useful to think of this program as a combination scholarship (because there is an academic achievement component) and bursary (because there is a financial need component)
