Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis effective immediately, the SGPS Bursary program is operating at a reduced capacity until further notice.

Please contact vp.finance@sgps.ca directly if you have any questions or concerns.

If you have incurred an unexpected or sudden emergency expense due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, you are likely eligible for an emergency bursary. Please consult the Bursary Guide attached here, for the documentation required to process your application. Funds are limited and applications are processed on a first come, first served basis.

Please note: The Office of the University Registrar (OUR) is also offering assistance at this time. Learn more, check out the Student Awards COVID-19 Updates page.

Due to recent measures that the SGPS has implemented to curb the spread of COVID-19, the SGPS will no longer be issuing physical cheques. As such, we will need you to provide your direct deposit banking information in order to process your application. Please use caution when sharing and storing your banking information and please consult this link on how to protect yourself from falling victim to fraud.

Due to the reduced service capacity of the SGPS at this time, we will work as fast as possible to ensure you receive a timely response and a prompt service. For additional information, please contact Vice President Finance and Services, Abel Hazon (vp.finance@sgps.ca)

Proof of Expense

To demonstrate proof of expense, applicants must include a receipt or official invoice/quote of the activity, procedure, or emergency expense that is the subject of the application. For Emergency Assistance, examples include receipts or invoices from the sudden, emergency expense. Please do not attach your direct deposit banking information. We will request this separately.

Whatever documentation you provide must clearly show your name. We cannot accept documentation that does not have an applicant’s name on it.

If you are unable to upload a file, please email your files to bursaries@sgps.ca

Please note if insufficient documentation is included, the Finance and Services Committee may request documentation, which may delay the processing of your application. If further documentation is not received, you may no longer be considered for a bursary.

Proof of Need

To demonstrate financial need, applicants must include either:

1. A copy of their OSAP Funding Summary (or other provincial/territorial/international equivalent)

2. Confirmation of their application/award of the Queen’s General Bursary in the same academic year

3. Proof of bank loans or student lines of credit

4. For International Students: a copy of any financial assistance you have received from Queen’s (like the international student bursary)/your country of origin/or loan agreements to finance your education.

Whatever documentation you provide must clearly show your name. We cannot accept documentation that does not have an applicant’s name on it.

Please note, applicants MUST include evidence of financial aid (as mentioned above), otherwise they will be ineligible for the bursary program. Ontario students who have chosen to forgo OSAP funding or a Queen’s General Bursary are ineligible for the program.

If insufficient documentation is included, the Finance and Services Committee may request documentation, which may delay the processing of your application. If further documentation is not received, you may no longer be considered for a bursary.
