Mount Allison's 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 entrance bursaries

Once you've received your offer of admission to Mount Allison, you can apply for entrance bursaries through your Connect@MTA account – a secure student network that will be provided to you at the time of admission. 

BURSARY APPLICATION DEADLINE: MARCH  1

The application and any supporting documentation need to be received on or before March 1.

Combining scholarships and bursaries – Please note that students who apply for bursaries can also apply for scholarships. Renewable bursaries may be renewed for a total of four years of continuous study.

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 financialaid@mta.ca
