MITT Bursaries, Scholarships and Awards
MITT STUDENT BURSARIES
Bursaries are offered in the Fall, Winter and Spring terms each year for domestic students with a demonstrated financial need and minimum academic standing. Bursaries provide support to current MITT students for their living expenses while studying.
Student bursaries are funded by MITT along with generous donations from business and industry such as RBC Convention Centre, Centreport, and the Louise and Allan Windas Bursary (Winnipeg Foundation).
Bursaries are also funded by the generous support of private individuals and families, as seen with the Joe Sawtus and Canadian Motorcycle Motosport Bursary and the Dave Holden Bursary in Culinary Arts.
Fall 2019 bursary information will be posted here in late September, 2019.
For the 2018-19 academic year, MITT was able to provide 65+ bursaries to assist our technical and trades program students meet their living costs while studying full-time.
Throughout Manitoba and across Canada, there are many organizations that sponsor scholarships for students. Future and current MITT students are encouraged to research and apply for every scholarship and award opportunity where they meet some or all of the selection criteria.
Students should search for scholarships specific to an industry or program of study, as well as for other interests and activities they are involved with. Examples include: sports affiliations, volunteerism and community involvement; associations with religious or cultural groups; union or corporate scholarships through parents or family member's employers.
