Deadlines approaching for Athabasca University student awards and bursaries

At Athabasca University (AU), we know the impact a university education can have on the lives of our students, alumni, and the communities in which they live and work.

AU is committed to removing barriers to university study, including financial obstacles, which is why students have access to hundreds of student awards, bursaries, and scholarships. Several of these have upcoming application deadlines.

Upcoming student funding opportunities and deadlines

A full listing of available student awards and deadlines can be found on the Financial Aid and Awards page. While some awards are available to all students, many have been created specifically for program students.

Donor supported

AU awards and bursaries are funded in a variety of ways, including through charitable donations by members of the AU community.

“The many student awards we have available … have helped many of our learners transform their lives.”

– Angela Kuzyk, registrar and chair of the Student Awards Committee
