Types of Scholarships and Awards
Emergency Loans and Bursaries
Students in critical financial need due to unforeseen circumstances may be eligible for emergency funding. For further information or if you have questions see the above website or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Other Forms of Funding
You might consider a student line of credit from your bank. They are generally more competitive than a regular line of credit, and most Canadian students with a good credit history are able to qualify for up to $50,000 (amounts may vary by institution).
A Note about Financial Resources
Various forms of financial assistance are available for graduate students in Education. Admission to SFU does not imply financial support. As a consequence of not being able to guarantee funding for all graduate students, the Faculty of Education stresses to all applicants, and particularly those from overseas, that they are responsible for supporting their graduate study at this institution for a minimum of a two-year time period and this should be arranged before arriving in Canada. Thesis-based students are encouraged to apply for Graduate Fellowships and present papers at major conferences, for which SFU supplies some funding.
