The Laptop Bursary is open to all MacEwan Students!
The Laptop bursary provides new laptops to students in financial need. No student should be held back by inadequate tech tools, nor should they have to weigh the value of reliable tech against other pressing financial needs. STUDENTS, if you need a laptop for school and are in financial need, apply for the laptop bursary. FACULTY, if your students could benefit from a new laptop for your class but don’t have the funds, please encourage them to apply for the laptop bursary, and share the link to this article.
Last year students in the pimâcihisowin Foundation Program or the Bachelor of Child and Youth Care (BCYC) program who demonstrated financial need, were awarded laptops and portable wifi sticks as part of a library laptop bursary pilot. Some of the students wrote to the Library to tell the Library what it meant to them. This is what one student wrote:
“I wanted to thank you so much for providing this opportunity for us. I am in need of a reliable laptop and it is difficult to buy one on a student loan budget while supporting 2 kiddos. I found out this evening that I am one of the recipients and I am ecstatic! I am graduating this spring as well and it will be such a big help with entering my new career. “ – Anonymous Student
This year the bursary has been expanded, with more laptops, available for students in any program to apply for, University wide. Apply by September 23rd. Instructions can be found on the Financial Aid website.
Still have questions? Students can contact a Financial Aid Advisor at the Office of the University Registrar, and there are a few options for them to connect:
- Attend a Drop-In Session, Sept 12 – 16. Details are available at MacEwan.ca/Events.
- Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Come by the Office of the University Registrar and sign into the virtual line for Financial Aid, Monday – Friday 8:30-4:30

From the Archives: The Move is On!
The move is on! That anticipated Tuesday arrived March 4, as Dick Johnston, Minister of Advanced Education announced the finalization of a lease agreement for a major interim facility for the college. The new campus will be 150,000 square feet of space located in the north tower of the Seventh Street Plaza, 10030 107 St. The tri-campus shuffle will see the Plaza housing the entire Business Division and Business Outreach, Advertising and Public Relations and Library Technician programs, a Learning Resource Centre, a full range of college and student services, and the offices of the President and Vice Presidents, the GMCC Foundation, Community Relations, Research Development and Evaluation, Instructional Development, Faculty Development and Computers and Systems.
The Cromdale Campus will be used for community education projects and special projects such as English as a Second Language, and the CPR project. Addition of the new space will make room for a staff lounge on each campus, and will alleviate the overcrowding evident on all three campuses. An additional 1,000 full time and 1,000 part time students will be accommodated each semester, and renovations will be finished in time for the college to move in for September 1.
"We're very fortunate in Alberta that we can still make announcements concerning expansion in the area of education. It's very high priority for us," said Mr. Johnston.
The Seventh Street Plaza will be the newest addition to GMCC as of September 01, 1986.
