How to Apply for Scholarships, Bursaries and Awards

We encourage all students to submit their award application(s) through LORIS to be considered for competitive scholarship, award, and bursary opportunities.

Check your Dates and Deadlines

Complete your award profiles and applications so that you don't miss out on awards, scholarships and bursaries you may be eligible for.

Check the awards important dates and deadlines to give yourself enough time to gather your required documents and make sure you apply for an award on time. 

How to Complete an Awards Application

Before you get started, here are some reminders: 

  • Check your MyLaurier email regularly for application updates.
  • Submit your application on time because late submissions will not be accepted.

LORIS is used to complete applications. To learn more about the system and how to use it, see the LORIS page.

Next Steps

Decision Making

Recipients of competitive opportunities are notified via their email between October and March.

All decisions regarding awards are at the discretion of the Student Awards Office. Decisions on recipients for all competitive opportunities are made on an ongoing basis.

If you complete the profile, there is no guarantee that you will be the successful recipient of an award. The profiles are competitive opportunities and the most eligible candidate(s) is chosen as the recipient. 

If you do not receive an award this year, this does not mean that you will not be eligible in another year. By filling out the profile(s) every year, you will have the best opportunity to receive an award!
