Bursary Program

The Virtual Elementary School Bursary Program ensures that Virtual Elementary School (VES) courses are accessible to students from a wide range of socio-economic backgrounds. The bursary is awarded to a student based on a family’s financial need. Students granted the bursary will receive the full tuition for one facilitated course. This bursary is non-transferable, and successful applicants must use the bursary within 90 days from the date it is issued. The bursary must be applied to a future enrolment following the issuance of the bursary and cannot be applied to a current enrolment.


The VES Bursary is issued six times per calendar year in the months of February, April, June, August, October, and December. One candidate will be chosen each submission period to receive this bursary.

Applications are due on or before the 15th of the month in which the bursary will be granted. The Bursary Committee will convene to review all applicants. Once the recipient has been selected, all applicants will be contacted no later than the 25th of the month.

All elementary students are eligible to apply for the VES Bursary. Recipients can only receive this bursary once per calendar year. Unsuccessful applicants may reapply during subsequent application periods.
