Financial Aid

Investing in your future may require some help along the way.

Laurier offers many scholarships and bursaries specific for Indigenous students.


Scholarships and Bursaries

Financial aid is available to you through scholarships, bursaries, government loans and Indigenous-specific scholarships and awards.

The following are examples of 2 awards available at Laurier:

  • The Cherry Award is by nomination only and is open to all full-time and part-time undergraduate and graduate students who self-identify as Indigenous persons. These candidates must be serious about their studies, and must also be caring, actively involved members of Laurier’s Indigenous student community.
  • The Yethihretsay:rons Bursary is granted to a part-time or full-time self-identified Indigenous student entering their first year at Wilfrid Laurier’s Brantford campus who demonstrates financial need.

View Laurier’s general scholarships and bursaries, visit the Indigenous Student Centre for Indigenous-specific scholarships and bursaries or book an appointment with the Indigenous Student Support Coordinator for information about financial aid.
