Student Awards and Financial Aid

We believe your education is one of the most important investments you'll ever make. Our Student Awards and Financial Aid (SAFA) team is dedicated to helping you achieve financial success while pursuing your post-secondary education. You may need a combination of financial resources to cover all the expenses of your post-secondary education.

That's where we come in! 

Receiving the President’s Scholarship has helped me immensely. I don’t have to stress over my tuition fees as most of it is now covered. This allows me to allocate more of my time towards things I love such as my academics, extracurricular activities and getting involved in my community.

I’m very thankful for this scholarship and to the university for recognizing me!
