A bursary is a grant, especially one awarded to a student to enable him/her to study at university or college. A bursary may be awarded on various eligibility criteria, such as academic achievement, sporting excellence, financial neediness, or race or gender-specific measures. Bursaries are normally awarded by a university, or sometimes by companies and institutions. Bursaries and scholarships are synonymous in many ways, and are tools used to assist students financially. In some cases, a bursary is awarded on the condition that a student works or gives of his/her time to meet the bursary requirements.​

Examples include travel costs relating to participation in conferences and events, research-related expenses such as patent costs, etc. ​
