Are you eligible for scholarships?

The U of R awards almost 500 undergraduate scholarships each year. Make sure you check out what is available to you!

What about student loans?

Student loans provide a more manageable debt load then bank loans and, when you apply, the government automatically considers you for grants and bursaries (that’s money you don’t have to pay back)!
