Nova Scotia University Student Bursary Program for Nova Scotia Students Studying at Nova Scotia Universities

For students from Nova Scotia, the Bursary will provide a tuition reduction of $128.28 per three-credit course and $256.56 per six-credit course. For students residing outside of Nova Scotia, the Bursary will provide a tuition reduction of $26.10 per three-credit course and $52.50 per six-credit course. Please keep these amounts in mind when submitting payment. 

Who qualifies for the Bursary?

What is the definition of a “Nova Scotia student”?

You are considered to be a Nova Scotia student if you have a student loan from the Province of Nova Scotia. Only Nova Scotia residents can receive student loans from the Province of Nova Scotia.

If you do not have a student loan, and you entered university immediately after completing high school, you are considered a resident of the province where you last attended high school. If you last attended a high school in Nova Scotia, you are considered a Nova Scotia student.

If you did not enter university immediately after completing high school, you are considered a resident of the province where you lived when you applied for admission to the university you are attending. This does not apply to students on international study permits or to students receiving student loan funding from a province other than Nova Scotia; neither of these student groups would be considered Nova Scotia residents and they would therefore not be eligible for tuition reduction.

I didn’t get a bursary but I think I qualify.

First of all, contact Pauline MacIsaac, Supervisor, Accounting Services at pmacisaa@stfx.ca if we cannot agree on your eligibility for Tuition Reduction, contact the Student Financial Assistance Office at the Department of Education (902.424.8420 in metro Halifax or 1.800.565.8420, toll-free in Canada). The Department of Education will confirm whether you are eligible for Tuition Reduction, and if so, will advise STFXU to credit your tuition account accordingly.
