We are now accepting applications for fall 2021 bursaries for incoming undergraduate students.
Deadline to apply: Extended to May 14, 2021
The entrance bursary program is for:
- applicants to a Bachelor's degree program for summer or fall 2021 in any discipline of study
- new undergraduate degree program students who joined Concordia in winter 2021
You must have completed your most recent studies at a Cegep or Canadian high school or college, or equivalent.
The program is not available to newly admitted students with previous university studies, including transfer students. If you are applying to Concordia as a Mature Entry Program (MEP) student with past independent studies at Concordia, you may apply for an entrance bursary.
Entrance buraries are primarily for students in financial need who are seeking or already receiving financial aid for the 2021-2022 academic year from the Quebec government, other Canadian provinces and territories, or through the United States loans program.
Apply for an entrance bursary by submiting these two things, in order:
- Aid declaration form and/or needs analysis form (as applicable, details below)
- Bursary application
You must submit both the aid declaration form and the needs analysis form if:
- you are applying to Concordia from outside Canada
- you are neither applying for nor already receiving government financial aid
If you have applied for government financial aid, or you're already receiving it, simply complete the aid declaration form, which will let us verify your government financial aid file. If for any reason we cannot, you will need to submit the needs analysis form also.
We can only consider you for an entrance bursary if you submit all the relevant forms in order.
Please use a desktop or laptop computer to apply. The system is not optimized for mobile devices.
Log into your Student Centre and click Apply for Bursaries or Scholarships (on the left side of your screen). Choose Aid Year 2022 and complete your aid declaration / needs analysis, and then the application itself. You'll need to submit supporting documents too.
Once your application is complete and you're ready to submit it to the Financial Aid and Awards Office, click I Agree. Keep in mind you won't be able to modify your application once you've submitted it.
Technical problems? Read on
If you run into technical problems like fields that won't open, or you see a grey screen when you try to upload your documents, log out of your Student Centre, clear your web browser’s cache and cookies, relaunch your browser, then log back into your Student Centre and try again. If that doesn't work, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will look into it for you.
The online system will automatically save your application as you progress from one field to the next, but it may automatically time out after 30 minutes. If you leave the application before submitting it, or if the application times out, then we may to unlock your application before you can log in again and finish applying.
In some cases, your web browser’s configuration and plug-ins may prevent the online application from working properly and you may need to get in touch with IITS.
If you need to upload supporting documents, the application system will automatically create a To Do list.
To upload a document, choose Entrance Bursary Required Document on the pulldown list. In the Custom Description field, write a brief description of the document, then complete and save.
Make sure you upload your documents as soon as possible, either when you apply, or within ten days of submitting your bursary application. (It that's not possible, please contact us at email@example.com.)
Please don't email us your documents or upload them through the main document upload link in your Student Centre. Rather, make sure you upload your supporting documents via bursary application. It's the best way to protect your privacy and ensure we can access the documents.
Your bursary application may be cancelled if you don't upload your documents via the bursary application.
As we review your file, we may add items to your To Do list. It is your responsibility to review your To Do list regularly.
The selection committee expects to begin its holistic evaluation of complete applications as soon as possible after the application deadline. You can expect a decision in July, unless we need to extend this timeframe due to a high volume of applications.
As always, if you have any questions, the Financial Aid and Awards Office team is here to help you! Contact us by phone at 514-848-2424, ext. 3507 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
