      How to Apply
    • Step 1: Submit your online application

      Scholarships, bursaries, and awards are applied for by completing just one online application; you do not need to submit individual applications for specific awards.   

      The online application is available in your Student Information Web Service (myCap).  Log in and select:
      > Financial Aid and Awards
      >> Apply for Scholarships, Bursaries, Awards, and Fee Deferrals
      >>> Scholarships, Bursaries, Awards application

      Some awards do not require an application.  If you are nominated to receive one of these awards and have not submitted an online Scholarships, Bursaries, Awards application, you will be contacted in writing and asked to complete the online Nominee Statement.  You may choose to complete the Nominee Statement in advance in case you are nominated to receive an award; completing Nominee Statement in advance does not affect whether or not you will be nominated to receive an award. 

       

      Step 2: Submit your additional documents

      There are awards available to support students who demonstrate leadership qualities, engagement in their community and on campus, commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship, commitment to gender and women's issues, and long-term goals of pursuing careers in teaching. 
         
      To be considered for these types of awards, submit one or more of the following to supplement your online application:
       Demonstrated Leadership (PDF)
       Community and Campus Engagement (PDF)
       Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability (PDF)
       Gender and Women's Issues (PDF)
       Future Teachers (PDF)

       


    • Exceptional Expenses
    • Supporting Documentation

      If you claimed exceptional expenses in your online application, you must submit documentation that supports those expenses (e.g. receipts).  All claimed exceptional expenses are subject to review.  

      1. Documentation must provide details on the nature/type of the expense and confirm the value of the expense that you are responsible to pay.
      2. You must include your full name and student ID number on all pages of the documentation.
      3. You must submit the documentation to the attention of "Financial Aid and Awards - Exceptional Expenses" in person (at BR 230) or sent by email from your student email account (to finaid@capilanou.ca).
      4. All supporting documentation must be received by Financial Aid and Awards on or before the date the award application closes.  Late submissions will not be considered.

      Your Letter of Thank You

      Capilano University appreciates the generosity of donors who make Capilano University a priority in their philanthropy.  Award donors give generously because they believe in the importance of education and want to help students pursue their dreams.
