Academic and career supports 

Our African Canadian supports advisors are a resource for students of African descent. They can answer your questions and help you find the information, culturally specific supports and academic supports you need to succeed.

Your advisor can:

  • Offer career exploration and help you choose a program.
  • Help you with your NSCC application process.
  • Connect you with funding opportunities (e.g., emergency financial supports and tutoring).
  • Offer guidance around applying for NSCC awards available for Black students.
  • Provide academic advising.
  • Introduce you to learning supports (e.g., tutoring) and other student services.
  • Connect you with other Black learners.
  • Our advisors also work with your campus community to offer an Africentric approach to events and activities.

Awards for Black students

We offer more than 1,000 scholarships, bursaries and awards that add up to over $2 million in student support each year. Funded by donors, partners and sponsors through NSCC Foundation, awards are granted based on a range of criteria: financial need, leadership, volunteer experience and career interests.
