Mount Allison offers a generous and competitive scholarship and entrance bursary program.

With more than $2 million in scholarships, bursaries, and financial aid awarded each year, it is an ideal way to help offset the cost of your post-secondary studies. In 2015, approximately 72 per cent of our entering class received an entrance award and many benefitted from in-term, need-based financial aid bursaries.

  • Bursaries: established to offer assistance to incoming full-time students who have a demonstrated financial need

  • Scholarships: merit based (may have financial need component) and recognizes a student's academic and extracurricular achievements

Applying for scholarships and bursaries
Our scholarship and bursary program is separate from the admissions process and requires the submission of a unique, online application that is located in your secured student network account (Connect@MTA) available once offered admission to Mount Allison.
