Tips to help you find additional funding
Here are a few tips to help with finding and applying for awards, as well as an overview of the kinds of awards that are available:
- Every year, UCalgary offers continuing student awards, which you can apply for after your first year of studies. Just submit one application and you’ll be considered for any and all of the awards you’re eligible for. The application period runs every summer from June 1 to Aug. 1.
- UCalgary offers awards for professional programs, and our website contains information on government awards, Indigenous awards and international student awards.
If you’re not sure what to apply for, contact the Student Success Centre. One of their academic development specialists can help you explore the different awards you can apply for, and they’ll also show you how to navigate the application process.
You can look up all of the awards available to you as a student through our online awards database. The tool allows you to filter your results using search criteria such as citizenship and residency, faculty, year of study and other special considerations.
It’s best to visit the awards website frequently. There you’ll find the most current information and awards with upcoming deadlines highlighted for your convenience.
