On December 9, 1843, Bishop’s founders set it out on a mission to offer the country the benefits of a sound and liberal education. As the University marks its 175th anniversary, Bishop’s longevity speaks to its commitment to academic excellence.
This commitment is grounded in deeply held values: being an inclusive community that fosters engagement, favouring the search for truth and the transmission of knowledge, encouraging outstanding teaching, research and creative expression, as well as considering sustainability in all endeavours.
Bishop’s is located in the bilingual community of Lennoxville, a suburb of the city of Sherbrooke, Quebec, located about 1.5 hours southeast of Montreal. The Eastern Townships region is known for offering a safe and welcoming atmosphere, exceptional outdoor recreational opportunities, and a great quality of life.
Bishop’s University provides endowed scholarships, awards, bursaries, grants and financial aid in excess of $7 million thanks to the generous support of students, alumni, faculty, staff, foundations, corporations and private donors. Each year approximately 62% of its student body receives financial assistance in some form ranging from $500-$20,000. The university encourages all students to take a look at the financial opportunities available to them and submit an application for consideration.For more information
