Bursary Program

A number of bursaries ranging from $500 to $5,000 are awarded to students in financial need. Trinity College bursaries are non-repayable awards designed to assist Trinity students who have explored all other avenues of financial assistance and who still demonstrate financial need.

Application deadlines are in January for fall-winter terms and mid-June for the summer term. A short interview will take place at that time to ensure that your application is complete and accurate.

Make sure to read the Trinity College Bursary Policy before completing an application.

Coming to university is a significant financial undertaking. Students are encouraged to examine their entire financial picture carefully and to plan accordingly.
