Scholarships & Bursaries

At the University of Windsor, we are very proud of our students and their academic accomplishments.  The University of Windsor allocates over $10,000,000 in scholarships, bursaries and awards to students annually.  Many of our scholarships, bursaries and awards are funded by the contributions of our very generous donors who include alumni, faculty and staff, organizations and the community as a whole.

What is a Scholarship?

A scholarship is based primarily on academic achievement.

What is an Award?

In combination with academic achievement, awards also include other selection criteria such as leadership, community involvement, etc.

What is a Bursary?

Bursaries are based primarily on proven financial need and there are many to choose from. Some bursaries may include other selection criteria such as extracurricular involvement, leadership, etc. Bursaries are meant to supplement, not replace, student's primary sources of funding such as OSAP or other provincial financial assistance, employment income, and parental/spousal contributions.

Medals or prizes are non-monetary awards which recognize student achievement.
