Mount Allison University Staff Association Bursary:
“The MASA bursary (two of $500 each) shall be awarded first to any applicant who is a full-time student at Mount Allison University (as defined by MTA policy) and a member of MASA (including a member on leave) or part of a member’s immediate family (immediate family defined as children*, grandchildren, spouse or siblings). If more than two qualified people apply the bursaries shall be awarded first to eligible members, then to their children, grandchildren, spouses and siblings. Within any level of eligibility, priority will be given based on financial need. If less than two apply, the remaining bursary or bursaries shall be awarded by the Financial Aid officer to needy MTA student(s) without the MASA restriction.
* Including biological children, step-children and adopted children (whether formally adopted or not — i.e. including ones who have been living with the member, as family) regardless of their age, whether they live at home, marital status, etc.”
