Bursary Email / Schulich Scholarship

Recommended Posts

Hello,

This morning I received an email informing me that I've been granted a small bursary. While I am grateful, I also applied for the Schulich Scholarship, and my combined family income is quite low (< $50K). 

Does the receipt of this email mean that I'm no longer being considered for the Schulich Scholarship? Or is it the case that they can make a determination on the Schulich Scholarship at a later date and withdraw the Bursary offer?

 

Thank you

Does anyone know when you find out if you will be receiving financial aid or not?

I received the admission bursary email yesterday, like ysera, with similar family income.

If you're interested in more info you can call the office of the registrar - they are in charge of schulich scholarships and also a good portion of other available admissions bursaries. At least that's what they told me when I called the schulich admissions office.

Can confirm, received a bursary with a decent amount - and they told me via phone that it has no bearing on other scholarship applications.

What was your bursary amount, if you don't mind me asking? over / under $5K?

Under 5k, my parents make a decent amount so I didn't expect anything at all, but I'm technically an independent. They gave me in the 3-4k range.

That's funny because I got in the 2K range and like I said in the original post my parents make not much at all. I probably messed up one of the forms haha. Hopefully I get the Schulich Scholarship.

I received 2k range as well with similar parental income to you. Interesting stuff

Maybe they're giving us less bursary because we're getting the scholarship (fingers crossed). Probably wishful thinking though

A nice thought, but if they said the processes are independent, I wonder. We can hope anyways though :)

I also declared as an independent but (6 years out of high school) but I declared my parent's income regardless. That might be the reasoning?

I am 6 years out of high school, and independent (don't live at home) as well so I don't think that's it.

Were you employed when you applied? I was employed and I think I reported my monthly income and back account balance. That might be it.

Any way I'm too excited about being admitted to care about a few grand in bursaries lol. Gonna wait and see what happens with the Schulich Scholarship.

Same! Best to you, I will say I did get on the lower end of the 3k mark but I guess they have their own method of calculation. Best to you with the Schulich Scholarship as well!

Do you guys see the bursary amount on your statement of account yet?

No, I was planning on calling them to ask. The email said the amount would be deducted automatically but my tuition bill is still 25k plus the 1k deposit I already paid...
