Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences Bursary

The Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences Bursary was created by alumni and friends to support undergraduate students in financial need. It is well recognized that the program is both academically and fiscally demanding. Bursaries ensure that university education remains accessible to students, and they aren’t prevented from starting or continuing studies due to cost.

"Donor support allows me to better focus on succeeding in my education goals by helping ease some of the significant financial burden of supporting a family while being a student." - Enav Zusman, Entry‐to‐Practice PharmD Candidate 2021
