AUSU’s Awards and Bursaries Program promotes and celebrates academic achievement and community spirit among its members, and provides aid to students encountering financial hardship.
Awards and bursaries are available to qualifying AUSU members* who submit completed applications with all required forms by the appropriate deadline. You can apply no matter where you live. The approval of qualified applications is at the discretion of the AUSU Awards Committee. See below for details on each award and bursary.
*You are an AUSU member if you are currently taking any AU undergraduate course. Your membership ends on the end date of your course, including extensions or when your final grade is posted, whichever’s sooner.
Please note that a maximum of one cyclical award and one year-round bursary can be granted to a single student per fiscal year (Sept 30-Oct 1) in order to ensure the maximum benefit for all AUSU membership. For more information, please review AUSU Policy 7.02.
