It is important to understand the difference between a Scholarship and a Bursary. Below I have selected the Camosun college bursaries webpage and The University of Victoria Scholarship program. This in class assignment will help you begin the search for post-secondary funding options.

In-course scholarships and awards
Undergraduate students who attend UVic in the regular Winter Session are eligible for a number of awards made available through contributions from corporate and individual donors as well as from the University operating budget. These are referred to as in-course scholarships.
The majority of in-course scholarships do not require an application unless otherwise specified; they are awarded on the basis of academic merit or department nomination.
Available in-course scholarships and awards
In-course scholarships and awards fall into three categories based on the application type. To be eligible incourse students must normally be a full-time student registered in a minimum of 12 academic units of study in two academic terms in the 12 month (May to April) period immediately preceding the adjudication of the scholarships and awards.
