No scholarships are usually limited to schools, area of interest etc. Bursaries can be used towards any school and education as well as things like rent. Most require a receipt to prove that you have used it towards your education

alot of the time bursaries are given to people who really need the financial aid, so certain places may require you to apply to OSAP

they're both similar in the way that neither of them has to be paid back.. free moneyy.
:cheers:

scholarships are awarded mostly for some kind of talent, or academic achievement, or extracurricular involvement, etc.

bursaries, on the other hand, are based on financial need. when applying for bursaries, they'll ask for both your parents' annual income, any RESP you may have, scholarships you have/will receive/d, etc.

Bursaries are never "contests," they're always based on need.

I don't know what OSAP is, but you can get bursaries from alot of the big clubs if you are eligible - masons, Kin clubs, Mensa, other lodges etc. - and you don't necessarily have to be members of the club either! Look around!

Yes, thank you, captain obvious.
That is what the WHOLE thread was discussing.
But I'm glad we have come to that realization.
