Normally, to be eligible for awards other than an entrance scholarship, a student must be presently registered full-time at Brock and have successfully completed four or more credits in the previous Fall/Winter Session. Students with special needs, who are full-time but carrying fewer than four credits because of the impact of a disability, are also eligible for scholarships, as recommended by the Associate Vice-President (Student Services).

Bursaries Go to top of document
Bursary funds are never adequate to provide full support or even a major part of support for students. Rather, bursaries are intended to assist students whose personal resources (including eligibility for loans) are normally adequate or nearly so, but whose immediate circumstances have created a financial crisis or limited shortage. All students who are eligible to do so, are expected to have applied for assistance under the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) and to have accepted all loans granted under that program. Acceptance of a bursary implies the commitment of the recipient to complete the current academic year. A student who withdraws from the University will have their bursary pro-rated. Please note: An asterisk (*) appears beside the value of an endowed bursary. The figure shown is the amount awarded last year. The value will vary from year to year depending upon the income earned by the endowment. Bursaries are granted for the current academic year and applications may be submitted at anytime during the term. To be considered for some donor bursaries, applications must be submitted by October 15 except where otherwise noted. Bursary applications are available on our website: https://brocku.ca/studentawards/.
