How is the amount of the bursary award determined?

Numerous factors affect the amount of the bursary for a particular student.  Bursary maximums, annual budget, the number of applicants, and the relative size of University-determined shortfalls are major factors. Financial need is determined by comparing your resources with your expenses.
