Honestly what i did was go to my student financial office at my university and asked them for bursaries and awards and they help you find them and you pick the best one for you. I also go online and search online. Your school would most likely have one that offers you without writing essays, all you do is fill out an online applicationangel Good Luck. I'd like to hear other students' stories too.

Most busaries are based on finacial need, so you are required to provide proof of finacial need.

Well, first off do you think you have financial need?

Often being a recipient of government loans is one criteria used, but usually there's other ways to show them you have financial need as well (e.g. doing up a budget).

FAQ's:
1. Will I get in? See: electronicinfo.ca for Ontario schools. If you have a couple percent above the marks there and it's not looking at supplementary, the answer is almost certainly yes.
2. Anything else: Google it before asking.

I plan on asking next week at school about the scholarships and bursaries as well. I find some of the things online too confusing as to what you can or cannot sign up for.
