Investing in your future may require some help along the way. Laurier offers financial aid to eligible students, as well as a number of scholarships and bursaries specifically for Indigenous learners.
Scholarships and Bursaries
Financial aid is available to you through scholarships, bursaries, government loans and Indigenous-specific scholarships and awards. The following are examples of 2 awards available at Laurier.
The Cherry Award is, by nomination only, open to all full-time and part-time students, both undergraduates and graduates, who self-identify as Indigenous persons. These candidates must be serious about their studies, and must also be caring, actively involved members of Laurier’s Indigenous student community.
The Yethihretsay:rons Bursary is granted to a part-time or full-time self-identified Indigenous student entering their first year at Wilfrid Laurier’s Brantford campus who demonstrates financial need.
Check out Laurier’s scholarships and bursaries, visit the Office of Indigenous Initiatives or book an appointment with the Indigenous Student Support Coordinator for information about financial aid to you.
