Assistance with student aid and award funding

At AU, you have access to both traditional sources for student funding, such as student loans and bursary programs, as well as specific awards and grants for students with disabilities.

Requirements for funding can vary across regions, nationally and internationally. In collaboration with your student financial aid advisor, we can help you navigate through this process to learn what applies to you. Which type of funding you are eligible for also depends on the following factors:

  • your present means of support
  • your course load and vocational goals
  • your eligibility for other funding programs
  • the cost of support service and technological requirements
  • your history with funding for education

We work with you to find funding opportunities based on your needs and eligibility. If you are ineligible or unsuccessful in applying for funding, we will support you in finding alternative solutions. Learn more about the various funding opportunities out there.
