Financial Support

It is the philosophy of the Athletics & Recreation Department to encourage our student-athletes to succeed academically as well as athletically. In order to support this philosophy, the Athletics & Recreation Department offers Athletic Bursaries.

Athletic Bursaries

Athletic Bursaries are intended to recognize and encourage the athletic and academic achievement of student-athletes who have been accepted by Lambton College as full-time students. The bursary is renewable on a term basis and may be extended for the full length of the student’s program contingent on the maintenance of a satisfactory athletic and scholastic record.


To qualify, applicants must:

  • Maintain a 2.3 GPA or higher in the academic-term(s) in which you play
  • Be registered as a full-time studnet
  • Pass all courses
  • Have a status of "Good Standing" with Lambton College and the Athletics & Recreation Department 
  • Meet Canadian and Ontario residency requirements
  • Return the team uniform before the bursary is granted

Please note: in the case where the number of student-athletes on a given team qualify for an Athletic Bursary and exceeds the number of bursaries allotted for that given team, preference will be given to those student-athletes with the best GPA.
