FINANCIAL AID AND AWARDS

Investing in your post-secondary education is

one of the most important decisions you can

make. Financial Aid and Awards supports you

in formulating a plan to finance your education,

and can assist with scholarships, bursaries,

awards, student loans and lines of credit,

government financial assistance, and budgeting

to meet your financial commitments.
Capilano University administers a wide range

of scholarships, bursaries and awards for

current and future students. Entrance awards

for future students provide needs-based

financial assistance, recognize excellence in

scholastic and athletic achievement, and

support demonstrated commitment to  

community involvement, leadership  

endeavours, and extracurricular activities.  

The entrance award deadline is March 31.
