    Students who complete the Financial Information section of the Medical Bursaries application are also considered for Differential Tuition bursaries.  To be eligible for a Differential Tuition bursary, a student must be paying the differential tuition fee to the Faculty of Medicine for the academic year in which the differential bursary is awarded.
    Nominated awards:  No application required.  Recipients are nominated by the faculty.
  • Notification:  Recipients are notified by email for nominated awards in June; for competitive awards and Differential Tuition bursaries at the end of August.
  • Registration Requirement(s):  Recipients must maintain full-time enrollment in the Doctor of Medicine program.
  • Payment:  Award monies are split into two equal payments over fall and winter terms and are applied to outstanding tuition and fees.  Excess award funds are processed by the end of October (fall term) and by the end of February (winter term) and paid directly to the student via direct deposit (Direct Deposit form available through the Human Resources office - Administration Building 202 or the Student Awards and Financial Aid website: www.ucalgary.ca/awards). 
    Award values stated as ‘tuition and fees’ do not include differential tuition fees.
    Due to the University of Calgary’s policy of equitable award distribution, a medical student may normally receive one major award in Medicine in a given year.
