Apply Online

  1. Click on the “Apply online” button above to be directed to the application site. Log in using your UWinnipeg webmail user ID and password.

That means we already have the details on your GPA, completed credit hours, major and other items from your student file. You may review this information by clicking on your "Applicant Record" (lower-left of the page).
  3. Complete the General Application and tell us more about yourself. You will be asked questions about your financial need, student background, and academic goals.
  4. The online application will use both your student record and General Application information to determine which awards you are eligible for. The Awards and Financial Aid office will review the applications and let you know via your UWinnipeg webmail if you are selected!
