If you are a new student in September 2019 and can demonstrate financial need, you are eligible to apply for a King’s entrance bursary. The application involves a detailed listing of expenses and resources. Decisions will be made on a rolling basis for the 2019/20 academic year.
If you have sought financial assistance elsewhere (including the Canada Student Loans Program) and can demonstrate financial need, you are eligible to apply for a King’s bursary. The application involves a detailed listing of expenses and resources. The King’s Bursary Committee meets twice during the academic year (November and February) to consider applications. You may apply up to the end of October in the first term, and up to the end of January in the second term.
The Acadia Broadcasting Bursary is granted to a student or students in the four-year Bachelor of Journalism (Honours) program, the one-year Bachelor of Journalism program, or the one-year Master of Journalism program who have demonstrated an interest in broadcast journalism and have demonstrated financial need. The award is open to all students, but preference will be given to a student or students from Nova Scotia or New Brunswick. The bursary can be given out as a single bursary or divided into two separate awards.
King’s understands that integrating an exchange or study abroad program into your degree can be an expensive venture. The following financial assistance is available to students:
The Study/Work International Fund (SWIF) provides funding to King’s students in financial need who wish to undertake an international placement as part of their academic program. Students are expected to apply at least one month prior to departure; however, if possible, applications should be submitted four to six weeks prior to departure to allow enough time for review and processing.
King’s students are also eligible to apply for the Godfrey Traveling Scholarship, which provides funds for up to a year of study, or to engage in a project connected with education or development work, in a developing country. This scholarship can also provide funding to students from developing countries to study at the College. For consideration for this award, apply by writing to the Registrar by March 15. The letter of application should include a description of intended activities in relation to a developing country.
