Vancouver Island University Tuition Bursary Program

Tuition bursary amounts are $400* for single students with no children, and $600* for students with children. Please note, first consideration will be given to students receiving government student loan funding for the current academic year, from any Province within Canada. Students not receiving student loans must demonstrate financial need through recent pay stubs, T4 slips, or an income tax assessment. Funds will be applied directly to tuition fees for the spring semester. In allocating bursaries and determining the amounts, grade point average (GPA) will be considered. *(amounts may vary dependant upon funds available)
