Scholarships and Financial Aid

Qualified members can access a variety of scholarships, bursaries, and fellowships to help further their studies and career. Financial aid is also provided to qualifying members deemed in "dire financial distress."

Post-Graduate Scholarships

Each year, three memorial scholarships, named for Rose Cassin, Doreen Brady, and Father J. Harold Conway, may be awarded to members for full-time post-graduate study. Each is valued at up to $10,000. If there are not enough qualified applicants for full-time studies, the money may be apportioned for part-time studies.

The deadline for applications is April 1 of each year, for post-graduate studies undertaken in the following academic year.

Bursaries

Each year, bursaries of up to $1,000.00 are awarded to individual members. These bursaries are named the Joan Kamps Memorial Bursaries. Members currently in the pre-degree categories who are taking undergraduate courses shall be given priority as applicants. Members who wish to pursue post-graduate studies or professional development activities as lifelong learning are also eligible.

The deadline for applications is May 1 of each year for courses taken from the summer session of that calendar year through to June 30 of the following calendar year.

Fellowships

Two fellowships of up to $10,000 each may be available to members each year for full-time studies in religious education, and one fellowship of up to $10,000 may be available to members each year for full-time study in Labour Studies. If there are not enough qualified applicants for full-time studies, the money may be awarded for part-time studies. 

The deadline for applications is April 1 of each year, for post-graduate studies undertaken in the following academic year.  

Dire Distress Grants

As the need arises, grants may be provided to members, or retired members, who find themselves in dire financial need. Members may be eligible to receive up to $10,000. The amount and any terms by which a grant is provided is determined by a Grants Committee.
