Scholarship

International students at TRU are eligible to be considered for all merit based awards (scholarships, awards, fellowships, & prizes). These awards are made on the basis of individual achievements such as academic, athletic, artistic or other accomplishments, and financial need is not a factor. To apply for merit based awards, submit an Online Awards Application through your myTRU account by the third Friday of each September. Please note that some awards are restricted by program, year of study, citizenship, and other factors.

Bursaries (based on financial need) are limited to Canadian citizens and Permanent Residents only, as these are either taxpayer supported or locally funded. TRU assumes that international students will arrange their own funding to meet immigration requirements for the issuance and/or renewal of student authorizations and visas, as per IRCC stipulations and understanding that you have adequate financial resources to support yourself and any accompanying family members. If you are an international student, you should explore financial aid programs from your home country to see if you qualify.

Very educated, inspiring and helpful!

The faculty at my university was among the best I have ever seen: each and every professor was well-qualified and had a great deal of experience and knowledge. Moreover, each instructor genuinely cared about the students and their success. I often recall my professor's words of encouragement and inspiration whenever I face an obstacle in my life.
