Concordia Bursary Program (Open)

Students experiencing financial difficulties while attending Concordia may apply for bursary assistance.

Students are expected to make plans for funding their education through primary sources such as personal and family savings, scholarships and awards, and employment earnings. A bursary is meant to supplement, not replace, other financial assistance. The program is funded by both Concordia University of Edmonton and private donors.
