The scholarship received must be declared on the Scholarships or bursaries line of your application for financial assistance from the Loans and Bursaries Program, if it was awarded during the concerned calendar year. If your application for financial assistance under the Loans and Bursaries Program was sent before you received this scholarship, you must complete the Declaration of Change form using our Online Services in order to amend the information you previously reported.
Repeating an internship
If you failed or abandoned your internship and subsequently retake it, you must resubmit your application for the scholarship. Since you have already received the first installment of the scholarship, you will only receive the second installment upon successful completion of your internship.
If you abandoned your internship in the first 30 days and do not repeat it no later than the following school year, you must repay the amount received.
