Bursaries

The Collegiate


A bursary is a grant based on financial need and is meant to supplement a student’s own resources for tuition. A copy of both parents' previous year’s “Notice of Assessment” from Revenue Canada is required with all bursary applications. Students must maintain a satisfactory academic record and class attendance to continue to qualify for a bursary. Application for bursaries should be made by August 15; however, students in financial need should not hesitate to contact a Dean regarding tuition assistance at any point during the school year. Application forms may be obtained here or from The Collegiate Office, Room 1W02, Wesley Hall.

The Dean’s Bursary Fund
(In Memory of Dean Lorne Tomlinson)

This fund has been established to provide financial support to students who would otherwise not be able to attend The Collegiate, and to honour Dr. Lorne Tomlinson, former Dean of The Collegiate.

The fund was established by Mr. James (Jim) D. MacDonald, HD, local business leader and University of Winnipeg Collegiate alumnus, through an unprecedented gift to The University of Winnipeg Collegiate. This bursary fund will enable those who may not have the financial means to share in an educational experience that Mr. MacDonald feels will undoubtedly stay with students forever.

Mr. MacDonald’s involvement with The University of Winnipeg began as a student in the 1960s. It was in fact, Lorne Tomlinson, Dean of The Collegiate, who interviewed the young Jim MacDonald and admitted him into Grade 11. As with so many Collegiate students, this meeting with Dean Tomlinson set MacDonald on a path of hard work and achievement.

His association with his alma mater did not end with graduation. In the 1970s, he founded The University of Winnipeg Collegiate Alumni Association, and was its first President, serving for five years. Later in 2004, he took on the role of Chair for The Collegiate Appeal, a fundraising initiative within the overall University of Winnipeg Campaign. This hugely successful campaign raised over $5 million to be used to support Collegiate students in financial need in perpetuity. The Collegiate deeply appreciates the efforts of Mr. MacDonald and his colleagues on the fundraising board.

A graduate of the Class of ’64, Mr. MacDonald has a long-standing commitment to Collegiate students and has made a number of previous and significant financial contributions in support of Collegiate student bursaries. His goal remains constant—turning lives around through a University of Winnipeg Collegiate education.
