General Bursary

Durham College students are considered for all bursaries and awards using the General Bursary Application form. Only one application is required per academic year and students are assessed and provided bursaries to meet their financial shortfall for the academic year.

Application Process

Students entering their academic year:

  • In September should complete the Septempber General Bursary, which opens the second week of September, closes October 28.
  • In January should complete the January General Bursary, which opens the second week of January, closes February 28.
  • In May should complete the May General Bursary which opens the first week of May, closes June 16.

There is only one application open per semester, please contact the Financial Aid Office if you have missed your application deadline and they will open the application for you. Submitting the incorrect application results in a “not awarded” response and will delay financial assistance reaching you.

How to Apply

Once you begin your classes please log on to MyDC and follow the attached directions.

Please note there is an expectation that students apply for all funding available to them – including OSAP – before completing the application form to be considered for bursary funds.
