The Allard School of Law offers a robust bursary program to help students with the cost of attending law school. Bursaries are non-repayable awards that are allocated primarily on the basis of financial need. On average, every year we award over $1,000,000 dollars in bursaries to our students.
Am I eligible for the bursary program?
To be eligible for bursary support, you must:
- be a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or have refugee status
- be receiving full-time Canadian government student loans in the same session you are applying for bursary support
- have an assessed unmet financial need using the provincial need assessment calculation based on StudentAid BC policies regarding income and assets
- maintain a full-time JD course load
- have received confirmation of enrolment for your Canadian government student loan by the bursary deadline
- apply for the bursary by the deadline
All bursary funding is allocated primarily on financial need and is subject to financial reviews and audits performed by Enrolment Services.
