Bursary Applications


Thanks to the generous contributions of our supporters, we are able to offer bursaries to subsidize program fees, allowing our programs to be more accessible to as many participants as possible. We offer bursaries up to 75% and ask that parents/guardians apply for what their current needs are. We understand that these are difficult times for many families. As such, if you require financial assistance for your child to attend our programs, please consider applying to our bursary program below. Your information will be treated with complete confidentiality.

In order to reach as many participants as possible, please note that we offer a maximum of one bursary per participant and up to two bursaries per household in a programming season.

How to Apply for a Bursary:

  1. Please review the current offerings for the program you wish to apply.
  2. Complete the relevant Bursary Application Form below.
  3. We will receive your application, review it, and email you regarding its status. Please allow 2-3 weeks for a bursary response in peak application seasons.
    Note: If you see the confirmation message on the webpage after hitting submit, we have received your application. You will not receive an email confirmation for your application.
  4. If your application is approved, register for the applicable program using the provided coupon code.
    Because not all bursary applications are granted, we strongly recommend that you apply for bursaries first before registering for a program.

Bursary Application Forms

Due to the limited number of bursaries available, we encourage you to submit applications as early as possible. Applications will remain open until the posted close date or the total number of bursary funds have been distributed. Due to limited availability of funds, Geering Up is only able to offer one bursary per participant and up to two per household in a programming season.

Please only submit one form for each child.
