Carleton University is proud to have one of Canada’s best student aid programs, and alumni and friends of the university make this continued success possible. Donors may choose to establish a scholarship, which recognizes academic achievement, or may choose to establish a bursary, which supports those in financial need. Donors may also choose to designate their award toward a specific department or academic unit.

The Background

Scholarships and Bursaries reward exceptional academic achievement and make education possible for students with limited financial means. Your generosity helps ensure students receive the support they need to become leaders poised to use their education as a force for good in our local and global communities. This past year alone, donors helped establish 60 new bursaries and scholarships. 14,286 bursaries and scholarships were awarded to undergraduate students totaling $25 million in funding.

The Rollout

Student aid provides deserving students with transformative scholarships and bursaries, which supports equal accessibility to post-secondary education. Financial support means that every deserving student has an opportunity to learn and succeed. Thank you for making a world-class university education accessible to students from all walks of life.

The Impact

“The pandemic completely changed the student experience and presented a whole new set of challenges. With the absence of in class learning, athletics and the ability to have a social life, it was especially difficult to stay both engaged and motivated. Receiving a scholarship served as a great reminder that I was not alone. It is a special feeling to know that there are donors behind us who want to see us succeed in our studies.”
