Red River College assists students by administering awards, bursaries, and scholarships that have been donated by corporations, community organizations, and individuals. These awards are intended to assist students who have shown outstanding abilities in academic or vocational areas and/or are in need of financial assistance.
The College’s Student Awards and Financial Aid Office provides a number of support services for Red River College students, including information on financial assistance programs available to Manitoba students.
The Manitoba Student Aid Branch is your contact when applying for federal and provincial loans, grants, and bursaries. Assistance is based on an assessment of financial need and is provided primarily in the form of repayable Canada and Manitoba Student Loans. Non-repayable grants and bursaries are also available. You should apply well in advance of your program start date.
You can obtain more information about student financial assistance and apply online at manitobastudentaid.ca. With the interactive online application, you will receive an estimate within minutes of submitting your application. Manitoba Student Loans and Canada Student Loans are interest-free and payment-free while you are in full-time studies.
If you are not a Manitoba resident, your application for financial assistance must be made through your home province.
