Bursaries

Bursaries are awarded on demonstrated financial need to Canadian families. It is an award and no repayment is required. The size of individual grants is limited by the amount of endowment monies available and the number of applicants. 

To apply for bursaries, a completed school application form must be on file in the Admission Office. All requests for financial assistance are processed by an independent firm, Apple Financial Services, for assessment and recommendation. There is a nominal fee associated with this service.
 
In evaluating requests for aid, the school considers the following criteria
  • The demonstrated financial need of the family
  • The financial assistance that is available from the school
  • The students' academic record and their potential to contribute to school life.
  • Our commitment to equitable treatment for all applicants. This is possible only if full details of the parents' financial situation have been disclosed on the Apple Financial Services application.

Review and Approval Process

All requests for bursaries must be made through the use of Apple Financial Services. No request for financial assistance is entertained by the school unless a school application is on file and the information is submitted to Apple Financial Services. All information is held in strict confidence. A new financial aid application must be submitted each year and reflect any changes in financial circumstances. All awards are given on an annual basis and are not automatically renewed. The level of financial support may be adjusted if there is a change in the parents' financial status.
 
Returning families requesting financial aid must submit forms to Apple Financial Services each year. Current school fees must be paid in full before an application can be considered. All awards will be credited to a student's tuition upon enrolment for the following academic year.
