Scholarships, Bursaries & Awards


Scholarships (based only on academics)

Guaranteed Entrance scholarships are automatically awarded to students on the basis of their top six final high school grades.

In-course scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic merit to full-time undergraduate students (18 credits or more per fall/winter session) who have completed at least one full year of study at Nipissing University. Generally, an application is not required. Students must be registered ​to receive a scholarship, which is generally paid out in January. Weighted grades are used to determine eligibility for a scholarship.

Bursaries and Awards (based on financial need and/or other criteria)

Provided to students on the basis of financial need or some combination of extra-curric​​ular involvement, academics, demonstrated leadership ability, volunteerism or other similar criterion plus financial need. To ​​demonstrate financial need, students must self-identify by applying for any/all of the following: OSAP (or other government student loan program), the Web Bursary Program, or the Work Study program.

Separate applications are not generally required for most of our bursaries and awards; if you feel you will require some additional financial assistance during the fall and winter session simply complete the online Web Bursary ap​plication which can be found on Web Advisor the month of October (it is due November 1). As part of our committment to the Student Access Guarantee, bursary assistance may be provided, if warranted, to ensure that tuition and book costs are met.
