Mount Allison's entrance bursary program offers assistance to students who have financial need in order to help provide access to post-secondary education.
All incoming students are eligible to apply for Mount Allison's entrance bursaries. Entrance bursaries assist incoming full-time students who have financial need. Bursaries are based on demonstrated financial need and are intended to supplement, but not replace, the student's own resources and the resources of the applicant's immediate family and/or calculated parental contribution as indicated by provincial and/or federal student loans.

Applying for an entrance bursary
To be considered, students must submit the online entrance bursary application via their secured student network account (Connect@MTA) and all required documentation, as outlined in the application, BY MARCH 1.

New students not considered for an entrance bursary may also apply to Mount Allison’s in-term bursary program upon arriving on campus in the fall. For more information contact

Combining scholarships and bursaries
Please note that students who apply for bursaries can also apply for Mount Allison scholarships. Mount Allison entrance bursaries and entrance scholarships can be combined to cover or partially cover the cost of your Mount Allison degree.
