Peter A Allard School of Law

Bursary Program

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. In 2021, we distributed over $1.6 million in bursaries.

Am I eligible for the bursary program? 

To be eligible for bursary support, you must:

  1. be a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or have refugee status
  2. be receiving full-time Canadian government student loans in the same session you are applying for bursary support
  3. have an assessed unmet financial need using the provincial need assessment calculation based on StudentAid BC policies regarding income and assets
  4. maintain a full-time JD course load
  5. have received confirmation of enrolment for your Canadian government student loan by the bursary deadline
  6. 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.
