The Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative

Did you know, in addition to the loans you can receive from Manitoba Student Aid, you may also be eligible for non-repayable scholarships, grants and/or bursaries from your school?

Through the Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative, the provincial government matches a lot of the private donations that schools get from donors at a 1 to 2 ratio (1 government dollar for every 2 private dollars donated).

This means that the provincial government gives out $6.75 million to schools each year, who then match these dollars to make more than $20 million available to students. Each school then divides this money up into different types of non-repayable scholarships, grants and/or bursaries. To find out what’s available at your school, you need to contact them directly.
