Financial Assistance

UIT is committed to improving access to technology and entrepreneurship education. Thanks to our industry partners we offer a bursary to UIT students with strong financial need. Eligibility is based on financial need and availability.

Bursary

  • General: Available to UIT students with strong financial need.
  • Women in Tech: We’re committed to increasing the visibility and influence of women in technology. This supports women to become leaders in innovation and entrepreneurship.
  • Aboriginal Students: We’re equally committed to increasing the visibility and influence of aboriginals in technology. This supports First Nation, Inuit, or Métis applicants to become leaders in innovation and entrepreneurship.

After you submit the request for information form below, we’ll send you the Entrance Bursary Form. You’ll be required to provide income tax assessments (and in some instances the income tax assessments of parents/guardians).

Scholarship

You might be eligible for CBU scholarships and bursaries.

Student Loan

You can apply for a student loan as a student of UIT at Cape Breton University. You’ll need your tax return for the previous tax year and a confirmation of enrollment from CBU.

Information on Canada Student Loan/Provincial Student Loan programs can be accessed at canlearn.ca.

Canadian residents must apply through the province or territory they have resided in for the 12 months prior to entering a program of study. Visit Provincial/Territorial Student Financial Assistance Offices for a complete list.

Disability

If you have a permanent disability you might be eligible to receive up to $8,000 to attend school and get equipment to help you succeed.

EI Funding

Some students may be eligible for financial assistance through Employment Nova Scotia Programs. There are two programs available to those in receipt of Employment Insurance Benefits or those who have been in receipt of EI during a specified period of time.
