The part-time funding will cover for all direct educational costs, including tuition and fees, required textbooks, miscellaneous allowance and some childcare when applicable.

Once a bursary or grant application has been approved, the student can then register in the requested course(s), or if already registered, the student will be reimbursed by cheque or credit card refund as long as the application has been received within two months of the original date of registration.

Eligibility
Bursaries and grants are available to applicants who can demonstrate financial need (according to the formula used by StudentAid BC). For Canada Student Grant only, all students must be studying between 20 to 59 percent of a full-time course load (normally 3-8 undergraduate credits). Applicants must be in good standing with any previous Canada or BC student loans.

For students not residing in BC, the Part-time Canada Student Grant (CSG) can be applied for directly through their province of residence.

If you or your program are not eligible for government assistance but you can demonstrate financial need, speak with a Student Awards Advisor regarding a Special Bursary Application through myTRU.
