Types of Awards

Financial Awards –These non repayable awards are given to deserving students that meet the awarding organization’s criteria, but who are not necessarily top academic students in school, or in financial need.

Bursaries -This is a non repayable award made to students who are in need of financial assistance and who have maintained a satisfactory academic record.

Scholarships -These are awarded mainly for outstanding academic achievement. Normally scholarships are dependent on factors other than financial need or social activity.  Each scholarship will have specific requirements that the applicant must meet to qualify.

Loans -This is money which is borrowed for a period of time but is paid back to the lender.  There may be no interest rate charged on the money borrowed while the student is attending school.
