At NSCC, we know that pursuing a post-secondary education can be costly. Providing some much needed financial support is one way we can help. Our student awards program offers a broad range of scholarships, awards and bursaries that address financial need, celebrate academic success, support access, and recognize leadership and community involvement. While some awards are specific to a campus, program or year of study, many are open to everyone. It is well worth your time to explore the full range of awards we have to offer at NSCC.

Thanks to the generosity of many donors, the NSCC Foundation awards over $500,000 in scholarships & bursaries every year. If you or your organization is interested in establishing a student award through the NSCC Foundation, please contact us.

NSCC's student awards are offered at various times throughout the year, with the largest amount offered in mid-September. The number of awards and the award values may differ from year to year but thanks to NSCC's Foundation, we have developed a robust awards program to support students in their academic and career success.
