Scholarships and awards
There are several programs you can take advantage of to help cover the costs of your education:
- The University of Manitoba distributes millions of dollars each year to new and returning students in the form of scholarships and bursaries.
- If you are a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, you can apply for student loans from the federal and provincial governments.
- The work-study program offers part-time, on-campus employment for students with financial need during the school year.
- You may also qualify for Indigenous-specific funding opportunities like First Nations band funding, Manitoba Metis Federation funding and Manitoba Inuit Association funding
Your finances, your future
"As someone who has lived in a First Nations community, I know the financial struggle of living day to day with little money. EmpoweringU is teaching me how to manage and monitor my money."
– Taylor Galvin, Clayton H. Riddell Faculty of Environment, Earth, and Resources
The EmpoweringU Financial Wellness Program is available to assist students with setting financial goals, budgeting and debt management. The program includes workshops, speaker sessions and other resources to help you make informed financial decisions to manage the costs of your education.
