Mathematics Bursary Program

The Mathematics Bursary Program is a new program available to primary and elementary teachers in Newfoundland and Labrador. The bursary provides funding for eligible current K-6 teachers to participate in a mathematics pedagogy course or a mathematics content course. The intent of the Mathematics Bursary Program is to build capacity among K-6 teachers and to enhance mathematics pedagogy in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Bursaries are available to applicants who meet the eligibility criteria and who successfully complete an eligible course focused on enhancing teaching practices in mathematics or on building mathematical knowledge.

To be eligible for a mathematics bursary, you must be:

  • a K-6 teacher or administrator (permanent, replacement or substitute) in the public school system
  • a resident of Newfoundland and Labrador
  • a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada
  • currently certified to teach in Newfoundland and Labrador


All applicants must complete the Mathematics Bursary Application Form. If you are eligible for a bursary, you will receive a notice of pre-approval.

Deadlines for applications are July 1st and November 1st.
