The Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative

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 1 ratio (1 government dollar for every 1 private dollars donated).

This means that the provincial government gives out $10.0 million to schools each year, who then match these dollars. Each school then divides this money up into different types of non-repayable scholarships, grants and/or bursaries.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Government is adding $5.0 million to make sure students with financial need can access school. By schools’ matching these dollars, $30 million will be available to students this year.

To find out about awards and bursaries at your school, you need to contact them directly.
