UWinAward Application - Apply for Awards

Current/Transfer Students

Application deadlines vary so don’t delay applying to maximize award opportunities.  Award opportunities are limited in the Summer term.  General financial need bursaries are available for students who are in receipt of OSAP.  The application portal opens for the next academic year on August 1.

New/Prospective Students (2024-25)

Students do NOT require an offer of admission to apply.  Once a student has activated their UWIN ID and they have access to the 'Applicant Home Page' in UWinsite Student, they will be able to start an application.  There is no limit to the number of awards that a student can apply to. Entrance award applications close on April 30th.
