Financial Assistance Application
Admission Bursary Application Fall/Winter 2020

To use this application to apply for Admission Bursaries and Need Based Awards, you must be applying to Western for September 2020 admission in either the first year of an Undergraduate program (programs in Arts and Humanities, Engineering, Health Science (Kinesiology, Health Science, Nursing), Information and Media Studies (MIT, MTP), Music, Science (Science, Medical Science), Social Science (Social Science and MOS) or the first year of one of the following second entry Professional Programs: Medicine, Law, Dentistry or Business (HBA1). You must also be a Canadian Citizen or permanent resident and demonstrate genuine financial need for the Fall/Winter 2020 term.

For first year, high school applicants:
Western recognizes that the current Covid-19 situation is having unforeseen financial impacts on our incoming students and their families, and we want to provide you with support to help with your costs for your first year of studies at Western. To help alleviate the financial challenges some students will face this year, we will be offering a $2500 credit towards first year residence costs to first year, high school applicants whose parent(s) are eligible for the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB), and who will be living in Western residence for the 2020-2021 year. To claim the residence credit, qualified students must identify themselves to our office by submitting the Admission Bursary Application, and by providing documentation to prove their parent(s) CERB eligibility. Documents demonstrating proof of CERB eligibility (eg. proof of payment such as copy of deposit information, or screenshot of application assessment) should be submitted through our online DocDrop. When submitting your documentation through DocDrop please select the Proof of Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) document type to upload your documents (document must be in pdf format). Once your documentation has been reviewed you will receive email notification to confirm your eligibility for the $2500 credit. Students who demonstrate additional financial need through their Admission Bursary application, can receive an Admission Bursary to assist with their costs for first year, in addition to the $2500 residence credit.

Students who are applying to Western as a part-time student, or who have previously attended a post secondary institution (and are not applying to a Professional Program listed above), must apply for bursary assistance on the Fall/Winter Financial Assistance application. The Fall/Winter Financial Assistance application will be available through the Student Center by mid August.
