Scholarship x Bursaries - Bolsa de estudos: Qual a diferença

Olá,

No site da Universidade de Guelph (CA) aparecem esses dois termos, como sendo coisas diferentes. Dois tipos de auxilios a estudantes. Nos dicionários mais simples a tradução é a mesma: Bolsa de Estudos. Lendo o site me pareceu que Bursaries seria aquela bolsa de estudos que você não recebe nada, mas tem abatimento da mensalidade. Já scholarship parece aquela bolsa que você recebe o dinheiro, tipo as bolsas pra pesquisa. Alguém sabe a diferença dos termos? São realmente sinônimos? Será que em outros países de língua inglesa são usados de formas diferentes?

Obrigado!

Hello Patrick.

I wasn't aware of the term Bursary, live and learn, uh? There you are.

Bursary is distributed on the basis of financial needs of the students. In order to apply for a bursary you have to provide a financial disclosure form. The applicants have to meet certain requirements of geography or demography to get bursaries. Extracurricular activities such as athletics and community work are also considered to receive a bursary. You don’t need to pay back the money you received as a bursary; it is a non repayable grant. But you may have to repay a certain percentage of bursaries received by you in that academic year in case you discontinue the course or take a leave of absence from that course.


Scholarship is provided on the basis of excellence in academics. Financial need is also considered between candidates of equal achievement. The grades from the last year school are also counted while applying for scholarships. Sometimes volunteer and extracurricular activities are also taken into account for obtaining a scholarship. Most important things required to obtain a scholarship is to provide grades and resumes. Students can find out the institutions that offer scholarships for students who are good in academics. Sometimes the students are automatically eligible for scholarships when they apply for admission. Some of the institutions ask the students to fill out an application for a scholarship separately.

Important: Before applying for a scholarship, it is better to know about the scholarship policies of that institution. There are different types of scholarship such as merit based, need based, institutional based, general and sociological. Each scholarship has to meet certain prerequisites and standards of eligibility.

Então.. Na definição diz como são distribuídas, quem é elegível e tal...

Mas o que queria saber é se são coisas diferentes. Ou se são apenas bolsas, mas são acessadas de forma diferentes.

Mesmo assim obrigado!

Hey, Patrick.

Ao meu ver, são bolsas de estudo com nomenclaturas diferentes pelos motivos já expostos acima.
