Amount of Bursary

A bursary is non-repayable financial assistance that could be awarded to you if your loan is not enough to meet your financial needs. The bursary amount corresponds to the portion of your financial assistance that the government repays to your financial institution. The loan-to-bursary conversion takes place at the end of the year, after your income has been verified with Revenu Québec.

If you attend an educational institution that is recognized for loans and bursaries, and the amount of your financial needs is greater than your loan, you could receive a bursary. However, the bursary cannot exceed the maximum allowable amount for the award year.
