Please review the Awards Bulletin located outside the Student Services Office, Room 160 Agriculture Building for more information.

Bursaries are awarded on the basis of need as well as academic performance. Students must complete application forms for the busaries listed here. Application forms are available from the Financial Aid & Awards Office, 421 University Centre or the Student Services Office, 160 Agriculture Building.

Students in field


The Clayton H. Riddell Faculty of Environment, Earth and Resources has opened up their NSERC Undergraduate Summer Research Awards (USRA) to other faculties.

These awards are intended to stimulate the interest of undergraduate students in research by providing them with valuable experience in a scientific research environment, and to encourage them to undertake graduate studies. Students holding one of these awards must be exposed to research activities during their work period.

The Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences will also have its own USRA awards - keep watching this space for more details.
