Student Financial Assistance
The Office of the University Registrar - Student Awards plays a key role in supporting the University's strategic objectives. The goal is to ensure that all students have the opportunity to attend Queen's, regardless of their personal financial circumstances. To achieve this goal, a variety of funding sources are available.
The Student Awards office is responsible for administering all merit-based undergraduate funding and all need-based funding for both undergraduate and graduate students. Merit- based (scholarship) funding recognizes and rewards students for their academic achievement (and may also include other criteria such as extra-curricular involvement). Need-based funding (i.e., bursaries, awards, eligibility for Work Study employment), is granted to students on the basis of demonstrated financial need.
Student Awards also administers programs for students attending Queen’s University, including: Government Student Assistance programs for domestic students, U.S. Loan programs for residents of the United States, as well as the RBC/Queen’s Student Line of Credit.
For more detailed information, please refer to either the Student Awards website or contact the office. Awards Officers are available throughout the year to provide financial advising on budgeting and the various options available to assist students with financing their Queen’s education.
