Bursaries are granted on the basis of financial need and involvement in St. Paul’s College (SPC).
Submission deadline for a bursary application is September 30.
For more information, please see the Dean of Studies, Room 209 or refer to the information below. Funds awarded are automatically applied to the recipient’s tuition for second term.
In addition, SPC students can apply for scholarships, fellowships, bursaries and prizes offered by the University of Manitoba. Information on these is available from the Awards Office, 423 University Centre. (www.umanitoba.ca/student/fin_awards)
i. Bursaries are awarded on the basis of need to full-time students registered at St. Paul’s College for the current session (i.e. the session in which they have applied for a bursary). Need represents 50% of the criteria in choosing winners of bursaries. However, other factors such as special circumstances and involvement in the spiritual, social and student events at the College, or at their high school, in the case of newly admitted students, are also factors in determining who receives a bursary.
Need is determined by means of the assessment of need provided by the University of Manitoba Student Financial Assistance Office.
International Students must submit a budget worksheet with their bursary application form. Download Cashflow Sheet or pick one up from Room 209, St. Paul's College.
ii. GPA: Though bursaries are awarded on the basis of need, a GPA of 2.50 in the previous fall/winter session is necessary in order to be eligible, except in the case of a student admitted to the University of Manitoba for the first time. Normally, as with the University of Manitoba bursaries, an average of C+ is necessary in the case of students entering St. Paul’s College from high school.
iii. Full-time students are those registered for at least 60% of a full course load or 18 credit hours in a particular program and/or year.
iv. Applications are made by completing a St. Paul’s College Bursary Application, available at the Office of the Dean of Studies, St. Paul’s College, and by completing and submitting a Manitoba Student Financial Assistance Application Form at www.studentaid.gov.mb.ca, though a student need not accept a student loan to be eligible.
v. Acceptance: Within 15 days of notification of receiving an SPC bursary, the awardee must provide the Dean of Studies with a letter of acceptance, otherwise the award will be conferred on another candidate.
vi. Deferral & Ineligibility: Bursaries may NOT be deferred, except as approved by the Dean of Studies in writing. Students may be declared ineligible because their academic circumstances have changed and nowdisqualify them from receiving a bursary.
vii. Dates of Bursaries: Bursaries are awarded normally by letter usually around the end of December. Application forms can be picked up from the Dean of Studies at St. Paul’s College or online.
