MITT Bursaries, Scholarships and Awards


Bursaries are offered in the Fall, Winter and Spring terms each year for domestic students with a demonstrated financial need and minimum academic standing. Bursaries provide support to current MITT students for their living expenses while studying.

Student bursaries are funded by MITT along with generous donations from business and industry such as RBC Convention Centre, CentrePort, and the Louise and Allan Windas Bursary (Winnipeg Foundation). 

Bursaries are also funded by the generous support of private individuals and families, as seen with the Joe Sawtus and Canadian Motorcycle Motosport Bursary and the Dave Holden Bursary in Culinary Arts.

Fall 2019 Bursary Update: 60+ current MITT students from all program areas received a fall term bursary to support their living costs while studying. 

Winter 2020: Winter term bursary applications will be available here in March 2020.
