Note: The University of Ottawa’s scholarship and bursary search engine personalises its results according to the student’s profile. If the APTPUO bursary does not appear within the results, it means that the student is not permitted to apply to it.

Selection Process and Criteria

Awards are given on the basis of financial needs and academic merit. The Financial Aid and Awards Service makes an initial screening of the applications and submits its recommendations to the APTPUO, where the Awards Committee then makes final selection. Its decisions are final and cannot be appealed.
