Bursaries are awarded based on financial need. 

Scholarships are awarded based on academic excellence to help SFU attract the best and brightest students and student-athletes.

Awards recognize outstanding academic, athletic or community achievements.

Entrance scholarships, bursaries or awards can be created for $5,000 per year, with a minimum of three years. With an entrance award, you make the special commitment to support one high school student entering SFU for at least their first three years of study.

Endowments are one way that you can ensure your annual scholarship, bursary or award is truly a lasting legacy at SFU.  With a minimum gift of $20,000 (for undergraduate awards) or $30,000 (for graduate awards), the capital is held in perpetuity and invested.  A portion of the interest earned is given out, while the remaining interest is re-capitalized into the endowment.  As the endowment grows, so do the student awards.
