There are bursaries available to students who have financial need. Note: Canadian students are required to apply for government financial aid as part of the CMU bursary application which gives CMU an objective needs assessment and informs students of their eligibility for government financial aid including government bursaries and grants as well as student loans.
Bursary applications will be available April 15 (for fall semester) and October 15 (for winter semester) with deadlines for the completed application on July 15 and November 10. Funds are distributed in time for the beginning of the semester.
Bursaries are available to students who are full-time (nine credit hours or more) in both the fall and winter semesters.
Undergraduate, Outtatown, and Graduate students attending CMU who receive financial support from their church can have that support matched by CMU up to $250 per semester to a maximum of $500 per year for Canadian students and $500 per semester to a maximum of $1,000 per year for American students. This grant is only available for the fall and winter semesters.
Churches and students please note the following:
Applications for the Church Matching Grant Program will be accepted starting June 1. Funds will be matched on a first come first served basis.
Funds for the Church Matching Grant Program are limited. Once all the money has been committed no more funds will be matched.
A small reserve will be maintained for students starting in January.
CMU will not apply matching funds to a student's account until the funds from the church have been received by CMU.
It is the student's responsibility to ensure this form is completed accurately and submitted to their church with enough time for the church to process the request.
Churches supporting more than one student may send one cheque for all students supported through this program.
Students must be registered in a minimum of nine credit hours during the semester in which they are receiving the matching grant.
Funds must be sent payable to CMU in order for the student to receive the Matching Grant. Any funds sent directly to the student will not be matched. Please indicate the name(s) of the students receiving the funds in the memo line of the cheque(s).
