George Coles Bursary

The George Coles Bursary is valued at up to $2,200 and is provided by the Government of Prince Edward Island.

Who qualifies?

The George Coles Bursary is available to first time, first year student residents of Prince Edward Island enrolled in full-time studies at the University of Prince Edward Island, Holland College, Collège Acadie Î.-P-É. or the Maritime Christian College, who do not have any previous post-secondary education.


There is no application for this award. For eligible students, the award is conditionally placed in each student's school account in January.  The post-secondary institution will send a list of eligible students to Student Financial Services and funds will be released after the student has been enrolled for 24 continous weeks, usually the end of February.

It is each student's responsibility to ensure the educational institution has included his/her name on the award recipient list provided to Student Financial Services. If a student has not received an award and feels he/she is eligible, an appeal form may be submitted no later than August 31 of the eligible year. This deadline is strictly enforced.  Please contact the Student Services department at your school for an appeal form.
