Application periods and deadlines vary depending on the type of bursary. Check this website and the health region websites regularly for bursaries currently offered, and application deadlines and forms.
Clinical Placement Bursary
Provisions differ slightly for each type of bursary and all policies are evaluated and revised annually. The following parameters are in place for 2016-2017 bursaries.
Amount of Bursary
Bursary amounts range from $3,000 to $7,000, on a one-time basis, depending on the length of clinical placement, geographic area, degree level, and discipline.
In return for financial assistance, students sign a return-in-service agreement to practise in an approved publicly-funded position in the province for a specific duration. The length of the return-in-service requirements is two years.
Eligibility criteria are set annually and are detailed in the application package.
Selection of Applicants
Decisions are based upon selection criteria that may include geographic/sector work preference matched with need (rural and northern), date of graduation and employability, Aboriginal status, and those most likely to return service.
