5. How does the bursary program work?

The bursary program is based on lottery system.  multiVIEW’s Bursary Program Committee will randomly draw 5 winners from all eligible entries received.  The bursary is for up to $1,000 CAD per winner.  Winners are only eligible to receive the bursary once throughout the lifespan of the bursary program.
The selected winners will be contacted by phone and email, and will be required to comply with following to be declared a winner of a bursary:
  • Submit proof of post-secondary enrollment at an eligible institution on a full-time or part-time basis for the upcoming academic year.
  • Provide proof of Canadian citizenship or permanent residency.
  • Correctly answer a mathematical skill-testing question.
  • Sign a “Release and Consent to Publicity” agreement.

Failure to comply with the above bursary program requirements will result in immediate disqualification from the bursary, and another randomly selected winner will be chosen.

Winners will receive a monetary award to cover the cost of their academic program for a maximum $1,000 CAD, whichever is less.  Award will be provided in cheque form, payable directly to bursary winner or to the post-secondary institution of enrollment on behalf of the winner.

7. What is the deadline for entering a student in the bursary program?

Entries must be received before midnight on July 30 of bursary program year.  Applications received after the submission deadline date will not be accepted for the bursary program.

8. My family member is going to a school outside of Canada. Can I still apply for the bursary program?

13. How will I get my bursary funding?

If you are selected a winner of the bursary program and meet the bursary program requirements, the financial award will be made by cheque, payable directly to the post-secondary institution of enrollment on the winner’s behalf or to the bursary winner, and is dependent on payment status of academic program enrolment.

In the event that you are unable to attend an eligible institution because of: i) Illness, ii) entering the armed forces, or iii) any contingency approved by multiView Locates bursary designators, the payment may be postponed and the money shall remain the property of multiVIEW Locates Inc.

14. If I am in international student, can I apply for the bursary program?

No.  International students are defined as non-Canadian students who do not have “permanent resident” status and have to obtain the authorization of the Canadian government to enter Canada with the intention of pursuing an education, and therefore not eligible to apply for the bursary.
