Awards, Scholarships, Bursaries, and Loans

Undergraduate Awards

We encourage all undergraduate student pharmacists to complete and submit an application through the Undergraduate Scholarships website by March 31st each year. Ensure that you submit your application to ensure money does not go unawarded! By completing this application, Student Financial Services can ensure all criteria are met, including:

  • Professionalism
  • Contributions to student life in the Faculty or University
  • Personal and professional qualities and interests which may ultimately contribute to the advancement of the profession of pharmacy


Over 30 bursaries are available to student pharmacists.

The Supplementary Bursary program offers bursary funds to students experiencing an overall financial shortfall during their academic year. Bursary funds can be used to pay tuition and fees as well as essential living expenses. Bursary funds do not have to be repaid. Student's can apply for a Supplementary Bursary once per academic year (September through August).

Visit Bursaries for more information.
