How will you pay for school?

Enter any additional money that you will use to pay for your education.

Fields on this tab allow you to enter annual amounts, which are then multiplied by the number of years in your program. If you have a one-time funding source (such as a bursary or scholarship), you should divide the total amount of funding by the number of years in your program to avoid overstating your funding. For example, if you get a first-year entrance scholarship of $1,000 for your 4-year program, and you do not expect to receive the same amount every year, enter $250 for this scholarship ($1,000/4 years).
