Financial Aid & Awards

Recently announced Government of BC Emergency Aid Funding is reserved for students enrolled and attending fall 2021 and spring 2022 courses. To be considered, students must complete their online Scholarship, Award and Bursary Profile located within their student record. This profile will open on September 1, 2021. For more details, visit: VIU Scholarships, Awards, and Bursaries: Deadlines and Processes

Our Financial Aid office is currently reviewing all previous submissions for currently enrolled students who completed their online Scholarship, Award and Bursary profile by the past March 31, 2021 deadline. Due to the high volume of requests, students who will receive emergency funding will be notified by mid-June 2021.

Students currently attending VIU and enrolled in summer courses experiencing high financial need can email for assistance.

Until further notice due to the evolving COVID-19 situation, VIU face-to-face service, appointments or meetings are not available. Please search the menu tab for a wide range of resources available to assist students.

The VIU Financial Aid & Awards Office is committed to supporting students in their search for financial assistance including provincial and federal loans, grants, and internal and external Scholarships, Awards, and Bursaries.

Thank you to all individuals and organizations who have donated funds to assist students. Interested in assisting VIU students? Give to VIU
