|Entrance Awards & Scholarships|

Final selection will be made by the awards office and recipients will be notified in June. Funds will be awarded in October upon confirmation of full-time enrolment.
|Continuing Awards & Scholarships|
Recognizes and rewards outstanding achievements of currently enrolled and continuing full-time students. Criteria for selection may include academic achievement, leadership skills and potential through involvement and participation in their program, student clubs, student government, college activities, sports activities and/or community organizations.
Many awards and scholarships need no application as selection is determined by the Awards Committee, recommendation of program faculty, or nomination.
For those awards and scholarships requiring application, forms will be made available from the Financial Aid & Awards Office well in advance of the application deadline. The application period for most is January of each year (deadline being January 31). However, some are selected at the end of the academic year. Please refer to each individual award or scholarship description within our searchable database to verify application period.
The primary qualifying criteria is financial need. Eligible students must maintain satisfactory academic standing.
Bursary application forms will be made available by the Financial Aid & Awards Office mid-October each year. Deadline to apply is November 15. Bursaries are awarded in January upon confirmation of enrolment in Semester 2 and are made payable to the recipients.
