Bursaries for Students Pursuing Careers in the Justice Sector

Do you have grade 12 students who are going into post-secondary studies leading to a career in the justice sector?

The Association of Justices of the Peace of Ontario (AJPO), the Association of Ontario Judges and the Ontario Superior Court Judges’ Association (OSCJA) provide bursaries to students entering Ontario University or College programs that will lead to a variety of careers in law, (eg. Paralegal studies, criminology, police foundations, legal administration, etc.). Each association provides one bursary in each of the provincial judicial regions making a total of 22 bursaries.  Students demonstrating academic excellence and financial need are eligible to apply.

To apply to all three bursaries, students are required to complete an on-line application, write a short essay explaining why they think they should receive the bursary and provide a reference – teacher, guidance councillor, mentor, etc.

Details about the 2019 bursary applications process will be available on the OJEN website starting Monday, April 15th.  Applications must be received by May 27th.
