Need-based scholarships

Students who need financial assistance may apply for a need-based scholarship through Atlas throughout the year.

The amounts of the awards vary from $500 to $2,000 (or more, in rare cases), depending on the level of need and the availability of funds.

Please complete all elements of the e-form. Including a budget is helpful as well. Decisions are generally made within two weeks of when the application is submitted, and the scholarships are posted directly to students’ bursar accounts.
