Financing your degree is a team effort and we're here to help.

80% of our first-year students received financial aid last year.

We want to help remove financial barriers that may keep you from taking this important step. In addition to your own savings and family contributions, Mount Allison provides support through scholarships, bursaries, awards, and on-campus employment.

Deadline to apply for scholarships: March 4
Deadline to apply for bursaries: March 11

*Not available for students starting in January


Three ways we can help finance your education

Merit-based scholarships

Most scholarships and awards recognize your academic achievement and personal accomplishments.

Need-based financial aid

Need-based financial aid such as bursaries and loans are awarded based on your financial need.

Student employment

Work on campus! Opportunities are available both during the academic year and in the summer.


How much will my first year cost?

Start your financial planning early! We can help you estimate how much your first year of university will cost.
