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 2016, approximately 70 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 demonstrate financial need

  • Scholarships merit based, recognizing academic and extracurricular achievements (may have financial need component)

  • Awards – established to offer assistance to incoming full-time students who demonstrate exceptional academic achievement, community involvement, and/or financial need

Applying for scholarships, bursaries, and awards
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. Once you submit an application for a scholarship and/or bursary, you will automatically be considered for awards should you meet the criteria.

Please note that most bursaries, scholarships, and awards can be combined to cover or partially cover the cost of your Mount Allison degree. For more information, contact the financial aid and awards counsellor:
