A number of awards, scholarships and bursaries are available to full-time graduate students from the School of Public Administration and UVic. The Faculty of Graduate Studies provides a list of available awards and necessary applications online at <www.uvic.ca/graduatestudies/finances> or through their office in the University Centre. Information on bursaries and scholarships is available at the UVic Student Awards & Financial Aid Office, located in the University Centre, or through their website at <www.uvic.ca/safa>. In addition, the provincial and federal governments each offer student loans to full-time candidates who meet the requirements. Students are advised to apply for student loans only during their academic terms (i.e., not during Co-op work terms).
In addition to being eligible to compete for UVic Graduate Awards and School of Public Administration awards for their first year, students enrolled in the Thesis Option (On Campus) can use the income from up to three Co-operative Education work terms to help fund their studies.
Employers of many of our students enrolled in the Course-based Option (Online) are willing to financially support their employee's professional development by providing reimbursement for tuition and, in some cases, reimbursement for texts and instructional materials.
