External Financial Assistance Directory

‘External Financial Assistance’ refers to the scholarships, awards and bursaries that are available to all students through agencies unaffiliated with Vancouver Island University. This financial aid is provided and administered through external government, corporate, or community organizations. Due to this fact, information we have posted regarding external awards is subject to change. Please contact award providers for up-to-date guidelines prior to application submission and check the deadlines carefully.

Many students say, “I can't apply because my grades aren’t good enough”.  In reality, not all scholarships are based on grades. When applying for scholarships be aware of key documentation that may be required and outlined in the criteria section of each award.  Always read the criteria carefully to see exactly what is required to be submitted with your application.
