Funds Finder

The Funds Finder helps you search for awards that meet your needs and eligibility. Getting money takes four simple steps:

  1. Search the Funds Finder to discover scholarships and awards based on your needs and eligibility.
  2. Complete the General Application on AwardSpring. Your dashboard will show you all the awards that match your eligibility with additional requirements. With AwardSpring, you can share the same requirements (like a reference letter or statement of interest) across all applications with the same criteria.
  3. Apply for the General Bursary Program, if applicable. Located in “Follow-ups,” this will connect you with bursaries that match your criteria.
  4. Receive your award. Payments will be applied to your student account directly.

Funds Finder is a tool that provides current and future McMaster University students information about some of the financial awards that are available at McMaster University. Please check all award details, including the links, to determine if you are eligible. Most award applications are competitive and meeting the requirements for an award does not guarantee you will be the recipient. The status of an award and/or value in Funds Finder might change based on available funds, eligibility rules and new award possibilities. Additional award information can be found on Faculty, department or program websites and the University Calendar.
