About Us

The staff in the Student Awards & Financial Aid Office (listing page) are dedicated to assisting students in meeting their financial obligations with respect to their post-secondary educational costs. If you have questions regarding your financial aid eligibility, please contact our office. You may request an appointment to meet in person, or virtually, with one of our Financial Aid Specialists or our Financial Aid Administrator if you have special circumstances.

The University of Windsor offers many scholarships, bursaries and awards which are based on both academic merit and financial need.

The Student Awards & Financial Aid Office has a three-fold function:

  1. Recognition of academic achievement.
  2. Accommodation of financial need.
  3. Dissemination of information on the various awards available for undergraduate study at the University of Windsor.

A student award may take the form of a citation, medal, gift, prize or grant of money presented to a student. In some instances, students must submit an application form for consideration, although some are assigned based strictly on grades. Some awards give consideration to a combination of factors, for example, academic merit, financial need, volunteerism and/or leadership potential.
