MB STUDENT AID
What is Manitoba Student Aid? Do I qualify?
We break it down for you: Who we are, what we do, what we can do for you and what it takes to be eligible for our program.
Our program provides loans, grants and bursaries to Manitobans who need help paying for school.
Student loans are calculated based on your financial need and are meant to supplement, not replace, your own resources. Just because you apply for a student loan does not mean you'll get one, and just because you get one does not mean you will get the maximum amount.
If you do get a student loan, you don't have to make payments or pay interest on it while you are a full-time student.
BURGER KING McLAMORE FOUNDATION
When BURGER KING® co-founder James W. McLamore was ill, the McLamore family, Burger King Corporation and BURGER KING® franchisees came together to start a foundation in his honour.
In 2000, the BURGER KINGSM Scholars program was created to promote scholastic achievement in Canada, the United States and Puerto Rico to continue the legacy of James W. McLamore. The education bursary program awards deserving students with scholarships of $1,000 and $5,000 to continue their education beyond high school.
In 2004, the BKSM Family Fund was established as a not-for-profit charitable organization by Burger King Corporation, and began awarding funds, in times of hardship, to Burger King® employees.

- Involved in voluntary humanitarian activities (for which they have not been compensated).

Terry Fox Award Recipients are eligible to receive the Award until they graduate with their first university degree or diploma (for a maximum of four years), provided they maintain satisfactory academic standing and a standard of humanitarian work and personal conduct which, in the opinion of the Board of Directors, justifies the award.
The maximum value of the award is $28,000, dispersed over four (4) years. A stipend of $7,000 is issued directly to the institution each year in two installments of $3,500, one in September and one in January. For students who do not pay tuition fees, the award is $3,500 per year, issued directly to the institution in two installments of $1,750 each.
Recipients of the Terry Fox Humanitarian Award may not receive more than $15,000 in total scholarships annually (including the Terry Fox Humanitarian Award). If a student's awards exceed this amount, any excess will be deducted from the student's Terry Fox Award.
If a student's academic expenses are covered by another source, they may choose to decline acceptance of the financial portion of the award. They will still be granted the distinction of being a Terry Fox Scholar.
