The Huron International Financial Aid Form (HIFAF)

Deadline: February 1, 2024 

Huron is proud to be one of the only universities in Canada to offer international students aid on the basis of financial need, rather than just merit alone. We believe the transformative, world-class education at Huron should be accessible to all students who possess the potential and talent to meet our admission standards, while minimizing financial barriers to deserving students as much as possible.

The Huron International Financial Aid Form (HIFAF) is designed for students who are still facing challenges in affording a Huron education, despite any International Entrance Scholarship which they may have received. It allows students who can demonstrate this financial need, to be considered for additional financial aid by submitting the HIFAF application and supporting documents.

The amount of financial aid that can be granted to a student ranges from 5% of tuition fees annually to an absolute maximum of 50% of tuition fees annually, renewable for all four years of your studies at Huron. The final amount of financial aid granted is based entirely on Huron’s assessment of your application and the sole discretion of the Scholarship Committee.

Please note, any amounts granted based on your HIFAF application cannot be combined with the International Presidential Scholarship, if you are selected. The maximum amount of scholarships or financial aid granted for students who submit both applications, would still be 50% of tuition fees. Students will be responsible for all remaining tuition, ancillary and residence/meal plan fees.

If you are facing challenges affording your Huron education, despite any International Entrance Scholarship which you have already been granted, then we encourage you to complete and submit the Huron International Financial Aid Form (HIFAF). During this application, you will also be required to upload the following supporting documents:

  • Detailed, latest Income Tax returns
  • Latest pay slips from guardian(s)’ employer(s)
  • Bank statements from July 1, 2023 until now, including statements of bank savings, fixed deposits, as well as other investments (e.g. market value of shares/bonds/mutual funds) held at your respective bank(s)/institution(s). If you and/or your guardians have multiple bank accounts, you must disclose statements from all bank accounts.

The Seanna and Nicole Strongman Memorial Scholarships recognize “all round” student achievement, in additional to providing financial assistance at a time when that support is more important than ever.

The scholarships are awarded to students who, on the completion of their first, second or third year of study, are judged highest in the following five equally weighted categories: 1) academic achievement; 2) Huron citizenship; 3) community service; 4) involvement in athletics and the arts; 5) leadership.

To apply, you must be a full-time Huron student returning to Huron in 2019-2020. For senior scholarships, first-class standing is defined as a minimum average of 80% on no less than the equivalent of five full-year courses taken between September and April.

The endowment in the Vancouver Foundation was established in 1993 by the Strongman family in the names of their daughters, Seanna and Nicole, who, at the ages of 15 and 11 respectively, died tragically on December 31, 1982, in a motor vehicle accident. Their father, Mr. W. Gerald Strongman graduated from Huron in 1963, and was later appointed National Chairperson of the Huron College Parents’ Association. The scholarships provide a meaningful tribute to the memory of Seanna and Nicole.

Bursaries

Huron understands financing post-secondary education can be challenging. We are dedicated to working with students in financial need by offering assistance with OSAP, bursaries and work study. The Faculty of Theology also offers assistance to its master’s students.

Important: To ensure consistency of this information and centralization of revisions, the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development has requested that we direct students with policy questions to their website.  Please visit the OSAP website for the most up-to-date information on OSAP, and tools such as the OSAP Aid Estimator and Repayment Calculator.

OSAP WEBSITE

 

Bursaries are non-repayable grants offered by the university that are awarded on the basis of financial need.  Bursaries supplement a student’s primary source of funding such as OSAP, bank loan/line of credit and parental/spousal contributions.  Financial need is determined in a manner similar to the Canada and Ontario Student Loans assessment.  It involves assessing the costs of the program that students are registered in, as well as any available resources (RESP’s, part-time employment, etc.).

In order to be eligible for bursary assistance, students must be Canadian citizens or permanent residents, be registered at Huron in a full or part-time program and demonstrate genuine financial need.

Bursaries can be applied for at any time as the need arises until funds are exhausted.  There is no deadline.
