Concordia is committed to cultivating an environment that supports lifelong learning and skill development, and increasing access to academic and extracurricular opportunities through scholarships, bursaries and fellowships.
Bursaries — financial aid designed for undergraduate students who demonstrate financial need — form a foundation for sustainable student support.
By the numbers
At Concordia, only 15% of students who merit finanicial aid receive it due to lack of funding.
Roughly 70% of third-year undergraduate students work, part- or even full-time, in order to meet their financial responsibilities.
To establish a bursary, $3,000 must be raised; this provides a deserving student $1,000 a year for three years.
Suggested donation amount
If every member of each graduating class gave a symbolic gift of just over $20, these five graduating class bursaries could be established in an instant.
Member of the class of 2016? Give $20.16, or if you can afford it, a multiple of that amount, such as $40.32 or $60.48.
Every gift matters, when combined with the support of other members of your class.
