Student Funding

Below is a list of helpful information on student funding.

Student Sponsorships

A student whose fees are to be paid by a government, employer, or third party agency, on receipt of an invoice from Lakehead University, must provide written authorization from the agency (Sponsorship Letter).

The Sponsorship Letter must be on the agency's letterhead, and must include the following:

  • Name and Lakehead University Student ID number
  • Duration of Sponsorship (i.e. 2023-2024 Fall/Winter, 2024 Spring/Summer)
  • Items Covered (e.g. Tuition, Student Fees, Residence, Medical/Dental Insurance, Bus Fees, UHIP, etc.)
  • Maximum Coverage (if applicable)
  • Exclusions (if applicable)
  • Sponsoring Agency Contact Name and Email Address

The letter must be received by the relevant Payment Due Date and can be faxed or emailed to the Accounts Receivable Office:

E-mail: Domestic Sponsorships: Jennifer Caren, Accounts Officer
Fax: (807) 343-8947

Letters received after the payment deadline will result in a $100 late payment fee on the student's account.

Sponsored for Books?

Please note that a separate letter of authorization to invoice (Sponsorship Letter) for the payment of books should be emailed or faxed to the Lakehead University Bookstore.
