The Founders Bursary

The Founders Bursary was established to make a Crandall University education more affordable to entering Canadian Bachelor’s degree students from families with modest household incomes. The Founders Bursary is designed to bridge the gap between the cost of tuition and the total amount of support received by other grants, scholarships, and bursaries that originate from governmental sources and Crandall University. Priority for the Founders Bursary will be given to students who indicate an interest in living on campus. For more information please see the drop- down menu for information.


What is the Founders Bursary?

The name of the bursary honours the visionary leadership of the founding board of the University as they prepared to launch what is now Crandall University in the fall of 1949. The first members of the Board of Governors included: Rev. R. Gregg, Rev. C. Britten, Rev. A. Crowe, Mrs. W. Eaton, Dr. M. Armstrong, Dr. A.C. Vincent, Rev. A. Pyke, Dr. A. Langley, Mr. W. Tilbert, Rev. W. Elgee, Mr. N. Peveril, and the future first Principal, Dr. M. Brinton.

Who is eligible to apply for the Founders Bursary?

To be eligible to apply for the Founders Bursary you must:

  1. Be a new or a transfer student from another university or college beginning full-time study toward a Bachelor’s degree (excluding Organizational Management) at Crandall University, and
  2. Complete and submit a Scholarship Application Form and an application letter to the Crandall University Admissions and Financial Awards Office before the start of classes in September, and
  3. Apply to your provincial student financial assistance program and receive a Canada Student Grant for low-income or middle-income families, and
  4. Apply for, be accepted, and live in Colburne House or Mitton Court.

What is the value of the Founders Bursary?

The Founders Bursary for Arts, Business, and Science students who are awarded a Canada Student Grant for Students from low-income families is valued to a maximum of $8,100 per year less the value of any federal and/or provincial grants and bursaries received, and scholarships, awards, and bursaries offered by Crandall University.

The Founders Bursary for Arts, Business, and Science students who are awarded a Canada Student Grant for Students from middle-income families is valued to a maximum of $6,500 per year less the value of any federal and/or provincial grants and bursaries received, and scholarships, awards, and bursaries offered by Crandall University.

The Founders Bursary for Education students who are awarded a Canada Student Grant for Students from low-income families or a Canada Student Grant for Students from middle-income families is valued to a maximum of $6,500 per year less the value of any federal and/or provincial grants and bursaries received, and scholarships, awards, and bursaries offered by Crandall University.

What are the “Canada Student Grant for Students from low-income families” and “Canada Student Grant for Students from middle-income families” and why are they used as a factor by Crandall University for determining financial need?

These two grants are awarded to students based on a careful determination of financial need. While their calculation of student need is somewhat complicated, the Canada Student Grants take into account factors beyond just family income and consider important factors such as family size and other dynamics that affect a student’s ability to cover the cost of their post-secondary education.

I already have an undergraduate degree, can I apply for the Founders Bursary if I want to begin study toward a second undergraduate degree?

Yes.

I am a former student at Crandall University and I withdrew a year ago or more for financial or personal reasons, can I apply for the Founders Bursary? 

Yes.

I’m looking to pursue a Bachelor of Education (Consecutive) or a Bachelor of Technical Education degree, can I apply for the Founders Bursary?

Yes.

How do I apply for the Founders Bursary?

There is a two-step process:

Application Step #1:

Complete a Scholarship Application Form prior to the start of classes (since the number of beds in campus housing, and hence the number of Founders Bursaries, is limited, early application is encouraged). Along with the application form, submit a one-page letter detailing how you feel you have contributed positively toward your home community through service and how you feel you can contribute positively to the Crandall campus and local communities.

Based on your application, you will be notified whether you have been conditionally awarded a Founders Bursary, pending evidence that you:

  1. Received a Canada low-income or Canada middle-income family grant as a result of applying for government financial assistance (i.e. through the student loan application process), and
  2. Completed an application and have been accepted into campus housing, and
  3. Submitted payments for campus housing and university enrolment deposits.

Application Step #2:

Funds will be released to your student account at Crandall in accordance with Financial Awards policy once you submit to the University’s Admission and Financial Awards Office a copy of your provincial Notice of Assessment from Student Financial Services detailing the federal and provincial grants and bursaries awarded to you.

The Founders Bursary application form asks me for my gross family household income. What does that mean?

The definition of gross family income differs depending on your student category. For purposes of the Founders Bursary, Crandall University goes by the definition established by New Brunswick Student Financial Services. (A full description of student categories is included in the Information Guide posted on the Student Financial Services website at studentaid.gnb.ca.).

For instance, if you are a dependent student, your gross family income means the total income listed on line 150 of your parent(s) Income Tax Return (which is due to be filed every April). If your parents are separated or divorced, the parent with whom you normally reside, or who supports the majority of your living expenses, is considered to be your custodial parent for the purpose of applying for student financial assistance and providing the line 150 Income Tax Return information.

If you are an independent or single parent student, your gross family income means the total income listed on line 150 of your Income Tax Return.

For married students, your gross family income means the total income listed on line 150 of you and your spouse’s Income Tax Return.

If you and/or your family’s Income Tax Return has not yet been filed, you can easily determine the figure to be entered on Line 150 of a tax return by totaling all income received last year from the amounts recorded on official government tax reporting slips that indicate income, (including the T4, T4A, etc.) as well as adding self-employment income, rental income, etc.

How many times can I receive the Founders Bursary?

You can receive the Founders Bursary for a maximum of eight semesters of full time study. Students must reapply annually in order to demonstrate continued financial need.

Will I be eligible for other Crandall scholarships and bursaries if I qualify for the Founders Bursary?

Yes, you can still qualify for all other Crandall scholarships, awards, and bursaries.

Since there are a limited number of Founders Bursaries, on what basis will students be selected to receive a bursary?

The Financial Awards Committee will review completed applications as they are submitted, commencing March 1. Students who meet the required established financial criteria will be evaluated based on the likelihood that they will contribute positively to the campus and local communities as assessed by the Financial Awards Committee.

I’m from the Greater Moncton Area, am I still required to live in campus housing to receive the Founders Bursary?

Normally, yes. Research and our own observation over time indicates that a campus residential experience greatly contributes to a student’s positive university experience and overall academic success. However, if no beds remain in campus housing it is possible that students who wish to live off campus could receive a more modest bursary amount. To discuss possibilities, contact admissions@crandallu.ca.

Do students participating in the Claystone Certificate qualify for the Founders Bursary?

Yes. If a Claystone student continues his or her undergraduate degree in year 2 at Crandall, he or she will be treated like an entering student and will qualify for all Crandall University scholarships, awards, and bursaries and may apply for the Founders Bursary as if he or she were a new incoming student.
