Note: These scholarships and bursaries may require a separate application and/or additional criteria.

  • The New Sun, New Beginning Bursary is for part-time and full-time students who demonstrate commitment to education. Preference is given to Indigenous students in the Centre for Initiatives in Education Enriched Support Program and other programs of study.
  • The Richard M. Zubrycki Bursary is given to a second- or third-year Law, Criminology and Criminal Justice or Social Work student in financial need. Preference will be given to Indigenous students.
  • The Gordon Robertson National Inuit Scholarship is awarded annually to 1 or 2 full-time Inuit students either entering or continuing a program of study at Carleton University. The scholarship aims to encourage and promote higher rates of postsecondary completion for Inuit students.
