Students who complete the Law Awards application are also considered for Differential Tuition bursaries, provided the applicant submits proof of their outstanding government student loan debt to date. To be eligible for a Differential Tuition bursary, a student must be paying the differential tuition fee to the Faculty of Law 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 in July; for Differential Tuition bursaries in August.
- Registration Requirement(s): Recipients must maintain full-time enrollment through the upcoming Fall and Winter Terms.

Excess award funds are processed by the end of October (Fall Term) and by the end of February (Winter Term) and are refunded into the student’s bank account by direct deposit. Award recipients must provide their banking information to the university through the online Student Centre.
