Emergency Bursaries

    • Emergency bursary funds are non-repayable financial assistance for eligible Capilano University students who demonstrate a sudden and unexpected financial emergency during a term in which the student is enrolled and where all other sources of income have been exhausted.  Emergency bursaries are not designed to meet educational costs common to all students, such as tuition fees, and are dependent upon the availability of funds. 

      If you have a sudden and unexpected financial emergency, contact Financial Aid and Awards so that you can meet with a Financial Aid Advisor and, if applicable, complete an emergency bursary application.  Aboriginal students may also access emergency funding through First Nations Student Services.

      Emergency bursary approvals are case-specific.  Upon approval, financial assistance is provided as quickly as possible in response to the student's situation.
