Scholarships, Bursaries & Awards

Education and living expenses can be a challenge for many students. That's why we've created a student awards program that provides financial support while recognizing the diversity and needs of our students and celebrates their achievements.

NSCC offers many different types of awards for students - some are specific to a campus, program, or year of study, while others are open to everyone. Awards are available throughout the year (with specific application deadlines in the Fall, Winter and Spring).

Spring 2014 Awards

We have grouped the awards into the following four categories according to student status. Please pick the status that applies to you and review the list of awards that follow. Then, look at the description for each award that appears in your list, determine the ones you qualify for based on the eligibility requirements listed, and take note of what you need to complete your application(s). Please note that detailed requirements are included in each award poster, so it's important to review that information prior to completing your application. Make sure to take note of the deadline(s) specified on each award description.

In addition to these awards, each NSCC campus has 2 entrance awards for students coming directly from high school.
