Regulations governing UFV bursaries and scholarships
The individual student is responsible for submitting complete application forms (on-line application at MyUFV) before deadlines indicated in the award descriptions.
To fully qualify for a bursary, award or scholarship administered by this University, a student must generally be able to demonstrate one or all of the following, depending on the type of funding source:
- Genuine financial need.
- Satisfactory academic achievement (or potential for satisfactory achievement).
- Well-defined academic and/or career goals.
- Potential for success in his/her chosen vocational or academic career.
- Other added criteria that may be required by the donor.
Where the student has an outstanding promissory note indicating credit obligations to the University, the University reserves the right to apply the award directly against the student's debt. If the amount of the award exceeds the unpaid fees, the balance will be paid to the student.
The University reserves the right to issue award money to the student in installments, and, if necessary, to reassign awards to other students.
An award, or installment, will revert back to the University in cases where:
- There is a lack of suitable candidates.
- There is a failure of the recipient to meet the terms of an award.
- There is withdrawal by the recipient from a program of studies or from the University.
- There is unsatisfactory conduct, attendance, or progress by the recipient.
Students who receive an award are often asked to send a letter of acknowledgement to the agency or party sponsoring the award.
The University reserves the right to refrain from making an award if, in its opinion, the applicant does not meet the qualifications specified either in this section or in the description of the award.
