The McMaster Association of Part-time Students first established bursary endowments in 1988 to commemorate McMaster's centennial. Further endowment funds were created in 1999, 2004 and 2006. These bursaries assist students in degree or certificate program who would otherwise be unable to continue their studies without such financial aid. Consideration is also given to students who can not enroll at the university without some monetary assistance.
What will this bursary cover?
The bursary is designed to assist with the cost of fees, books, and child care where applicable.
How to Apply
Students submit a MAPS Bursary Application form and a covering letter by the deadline date. Applications submitted without the cover letter will not be considered. Applications will be assessed primarily on the basis of financial need and their covering letter. Short-term emergency loans are also available. Application forms for bursaries and short-term loans can be picked up at Student Financial Aid and Scholarships, Gilmour Hall, Room 120 or download a pdf version of the form. Phone 525-9140 ext. 24319 for more information.
