Welcome to Financial Aid and Awards
TRU offers a comprehensive range of programs to assist students in locating resources to cover basic educational costs and to recognize academic excellence. All of these programs are administered through the Financial Aid & Awards Office.
Need-based programs include bursaries, WorkStudy, grants and government student assistance programs. Achievement awards include scholarships, awards, fellowships and prizes.
The Financial Aid & Awards Office can advise on application processes for all of these programs and will also assist students in reviewing government student aid decisions.
The Financial Aid & Awards office also offers personal financial planning/budgeting assistance to students who require assistance in managing their resources and bills.
All financial aid and awards matters are held in strict confidence.
Appointments with Student Finance Advisors are required for emergency loan applications and some private loan funds, and are strongly recommended for anyone submitting a Request for Appeal of their government student assistance. Students may also request an appointment to plan finances and to explore possible alternative funding sources, should government programs fail to meet financial need. Appointments may be made through Financial Aid & Awards Reception by calling 250-828-5024 (Kamloops). Students attending a campus other than Kamloops may arrange a telephone interview through the campus office. Appointments for Student Aid BC Assistance application completion are available only if extraordinary circumstances exist.
